Septic Rebate Program Banner

The County of San Diego is committed to keeping our waterways clean and one way this can be accomplished is through proper septic system maintenance. In November 2020, the County launched the Septic Rebate Program which offers $100 rebates to encourage residents in unincorporated areas to regularly pump their tanks and follow septic system maintenance tips to prevent failures and preserve the quality of our water. Due to the popularity of this program, the County has added an additional 200 rebates for a total of 400 rebates.  


Rebate Eligibility Information  The rebate program is currently limited to 400 septic pumping rebates at $100 per rebate for residents in unincorporated San Diego County
