GRANTS AVAILABLE (2020-2022)
The Banklick Watershed Council has funding available to help homeowners experiencing septic system issues. To apply:
Septic Assistance Program
When properly designed, constructed, and maintained, a septic system can provide long-term effective treatment of household wastewater. However, a failing septic system can require expensive repairs, pose a serious health risk to your family and neighbors, and have negative impacts on groundwater and nearby streams, rivers, and lakes.
Homeowners are responsible for maintaining septic systems. Proper maintenance requires regular pump-outs and inspection to avoid costly repairs. For more information on maintaining your system:

If you think that your system is having a problem, a certified installer or the Northern Kentucky Health Department can help determine a solution, and the Banklick Watershed Council's grants might help pay for the repairs or connect you to sewers. Don't wait - grant funding is limited.
This program, funded by a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency through Kentucky Division of Water, focuses on water quality improvements in the Banklick Creek Watershed. To be eligible for grants, homeowners must reside within the Banklick Creek Watershed in Kenton or Boone Counties.
