Flack Broadcasting – Lewis County announces round four opening of New York State Septic Replacement Fund Program

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) has opened the fourth round of the State Septic System Replacement Fund Program, which provides funds to replace substandard septic systems on or near waterfront properties.

These include systems designed to discharge directly into the water body.

If you are unsure if your system is discharging directly into the water, a free dye test can be performed. New systems are not eligible for funding.

Lewis County participates in this program and eligible properties include those located within 250 feet of priority waters listed on the following Priority Waterbody List (PWL):
