Upon completion of the initial replacement and/or repair of failing septic systems, CWC will provide the Town with an endowment to fund the maintenance, repair and/or replacement of the septic systems located within the District for as long as there are funds remaining in the account. No local funds will be spent on the design, permitting and construction of the District. The property owner can refuse to participate and/or refuse to allow access in which case, the District will have no responsibility to repair/upgrade/replace that system. If the property owner agrees to participate, the District will take full responsibility for designing, permitting, and constructing the replacement system and closing the existing septic system. The property owner will continue to own the new replacement system and the District will be responsible for its maintenance.
