Septic Tank Installation Costs and Grants

The Minister for Housing, Local Government, and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien, announced that grants for Domestic Wastewater Treatment Systems (commonly known as Septic Tanks) will be increased to €12,000 from €5,000.

Upgrading your septic tank can bring numerous benefits, including better efficiency and compliance with environmental regulations.

The condition that the septic tank must be registered with the local authority prior to 1 February 2013 has been removed, making more households eligible for the grants.
