Wayne County Lateral Connection and
Well/Septic Repair Assistance Program

In April 2014 Wayne County received a grant from NYS Office of Community Renewal for Wayne County Lateral Connection and Well/Septic Repair Assistance Program.  This program was designed to assist low-moderate income households within Wayne County with lateral connections to existing water or sewer lines or septic/well enhancements.  We received approval from the State to begin the program after September 5, 2014.  There were certain eligibility requirements that applicants must meet in order to receive funding.  These include: eligible gross income, property ownership, payment of taxes, homeowner’s insurance and others.

This program was completed on August 11, 2016 and installed 62 amenities at 45 different residences serving a total of 92 Wayne County residents. All of these recipients were verified through the eligibility process to be low to moderate income property owners. The program installed 27 septic systems, repaired 2 wells, replaced 7 wells, installed 21 water laterals and installed 5 sewer laterals.

Wayne County received $745,000 from NYS Office of Community Renewal for this project that was spent on the following activities:
