THE government has been asked to introduce a grant program to all households with septic tanks to help them with maintenance and modernization.

According to council member Ger Deere, the situation is “a lottery” at the moment.

People are trying to do their best to protect the environment, but they need help.

He submitted a motion to the monthly meeting of Mayo County Council calling for a grants program.

He highlighted a case where an elderly couple with a son with special needs had to pay 8,000 euros for work on their tank.

On the other hand, residents who lived down the street from them could receive a grant for having received an inspection.

Anyone who is not checked has no right to assistance, he explained.

The government needs to look at a program if it is serious about the environment, he said.
