Septic Tank Charge
Since 2012, it is a requirement that all septic tanks are registered with the local authority and are subject to inspections to ensure they do not interfere with surface or ground water, or the mains water supply.
When you register your septic tank you will have to pay a fee of €50.
Registration is required to place every five years but the fee is due only on the first registration.
If you require any remedial work on your tank to bring it up to standard, grants are available and are means tested.
Information on registration and grants can be found at https://www.protectourwater.ie/ .
