Rockbridge Conservation has received a grant from Virginia Department of Health – Division of Environmental Health to administer a local Septic and Well Assistance Program for the Rockbridge Area.

In order to be eligible applicant must i) own the home and the land it sits on, ii) have a household income of 200% or less of the federal poverty guidelines, iii) need assistance for a project from the eligible list below, and iv) the proposed septic or private well system improvements must comply with current regulatory standards.

The program will assist property owners to repair failing septic systems, replace straight pipes and replace pit-privies. Replacement can include connection to public sewer or replacement with a system authorized through a VDH issued repair permit. The program will also assist property owners in addressing inadequate private drinking water supplies (wells, cisterns and springs) and properly abandoning unused wells and connecting to public water supplies.
