Metro has many septic tank customers within its service area where public sewer systems are not available. Septic systems are individual wastewater systems that treat household wastewater and return it to the soil. Metro’s program to provide financial assistance for septic tank pumping services will end on December 31, 2019.
As a Metro customer, you may be eligible for a $150 rebate once every three years for septic tank maintenance. Customers are responsible for the general maintenance and operation of their septic systems. To request a rebate form, call 864.277.4442. Submit the completed form along with the paid receipt from the septic tank contractor to MetroConnects, 120 Augusta Arbor Way, Greenville, SC 29605. Once MetroConnects has received your rebate form and paid receipt, a rebate check will be mailed directly to you in 7 to 10 working days.
This program applies to pumping services and costs of septic tank repairs or maintenance required by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control regulations. Again, this program will end on December 31, 2019.
