WSES will subsidize grinder pump supply costs for certain properties. Property owners who wish to apply for the subsidy offer must do so within the first six months of the sewer service being available for use.
WSES will provide grinder pumps at a subsidized rate to existing lots (one to each lot only) where those lots (residences) are impacted by water bodies including lakes, creeks, ponds, wetlands and other environmentally sensitive areas. The subsidy does not extend to new residences constructed in such areas after September 29, 2004.
Households (typically in strata situations) that currently pump to a common disposal field with effluent type pumps and who will be required to change their pump to a grinder type pump to connect to the new sewer built by WSES may also be eligible to receive the subsidy.
The subsidy does not extend to strata developments constructed after September 29, 2004.
