410,000 septic tank owners can claim grant

Only those who registered before the deadline of February 1  can apply for grant aid.

More than 410,000 liable households – 82 per cent of septic tank owners – have registered their systems to date

The new scheme allows householders apply for up to 80pc of the approved costs, with a maximum cap of €4,000 for households on an income of up to €50,000. The amount will be reduced to a maximum of €2,500 aid for households on incomes of up to €75,000.

Ireland is still liable for daily fines of €12,000 for failing to comply with EU rules on septic tanks, because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not completed its inspection plans.
