Is a sewer system needed and affordable for Area C?
A pamphlet prepared by the CSRD states if every household maintained and pumped out their system on a regular basis, a sewer system would not be needed. Even with government funding, amortized over 20 years, the cost is considerable. The typical annual cost per household would be approximately $1,000, plus the initial service connection fee of $5,000. Many new homes have state-of-the-art systems that actually operate better than a sewer system.
Education and proper septic maintenance will aid and protect your investment, human health and the environment.
