Septic and Sewage Systems

Our goals: Reduce the risk of infectious diseases transmitted by improperly or inadequately treated sewage.

How we achieve our goals: Permitting, site evaluation, system design, installation inspections, operational inspections, soil surveys (disposal and replacement areas), lot splits, and subdivision review.

Septic System Repair Money Available
Madison County Soil & Water Conservation District (MCSWCD) has access to funding from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to assist homeowners with repairs or replacement of their existing household sewage treatment systems (septic tanks, aeration systems, leach fields, and more). The goal of the funding is to reduce the risk of untreated sewage entering our drinking water and clean waterways in Madison County. MCSWCD currently have access to more than $150,000 to repair or replace failing sewage systems or to connect homeowners to sanitary sewer (if accessible). To learn more about this funding opportunity, including income requirements, please contact Emma Ryan at 740-852-4003 or for more information.
