Connecting an Existing Home or Business with an On-Site System

If you are experiencing a problem with your septic system or private lagoon, you may want to look into connecting to a public sanitary sewer system. Occasionally, properties with on-site systems are situated in areas where it is feasible to connect the individual property to public sewer.

There are costs associated with connecting to public sewer:

  • The property owner will need to hire an engineer to design the connection.
  • The cost of constructing the lines to connect your property to the public system is the owner's responsibility.
  • The owner must pay Sewer District connection and inspection fees.
  • There will be a monthly sewer service bill.


However, once his/her property is connected, the homeowner will never have to face the expense of improvements to an on-site treatment system.
