The Catskill Watershed Corporation has extended eligibility guidelines for its septic rehabilitation and replacement program. Homeowners in the five county NYC watershed west of the Hudson River, whose homes were built prior to November 2, 1995 and whose property is within 300 feet of a watercourse, are eligible to participate in the program. This program is voluntary. Homeowners who agree to participate will be reimbursed for the cost of pumping and inspecting the septic system to determine its condition. If repairs are needed, the CWC will pay for 100% of eligible costs of repairs for permanent residences, and 60% for non-primary residences. If you feel your property may be eligible, please call toll free (877) 928-7433 or (845) 586-1400 to arrange for a staff visit.
