Is your home on a septic system? If so, we invite you to learn more about Vancouver’s Sewer Connection Incentive Program (SCIP). SCIP provides an easy and affordable solution to septic owners in our service area who are ready to make the connection to our safe, reliable public wastewater system.
Did you know ... Nearly one out of every four U.S. homes relies on an on-site wastewater system. An estimated 12 percent of those don’t know the location of the septic system on their property, and a significant number are thought to be experiencing problems, endangering groundwater sources and lowering property values. Septic systems were initially installed in areas too far away from existing sewer networks to enable service. Some may even be unaware they are still hooked to septic.
Interested? Questions? Just call 360-487-7150 and ask for more details about SCIP. Thanks!
