Lakefront Homeowners Septic Assistance

Tenmile Lakefront Homeowner Septic Assistance

Presented by the Tenmile Lakes Association & Tenmile Lakes Basin Partnership


Evidence shows that one of the factors for algae blooms in the summer on Tenmile Lake is poorly functioning wastewater treatment around the lake. There are some that are not registered with DEQ and some that have not been maintained properly.

The Tenmile Lakes Association (TLA) and Tenmile Lakes Basin Partnership (TLBP) have provided technical assistance for years to lakefront homeowners. They have also encouraged homeowners to have their septic systems evaluated to be sure they are functioning properly.


TLBP will check the continuity of your system with a dye test - free of charge. TLA has also set aside funds to reimburse lakefront homeowners for a portion of the cost to have their septic systems located, evaluated, and pumped. TLA will reimburse homeowners (up to $250) who provide a receipt from a licensed septic professional identifying the work completed and the cost.

For homeowners to receive assistance, their septic system installations must be from 1975 or earlier. TLA will assist the first 12 homeowners to submit valid receipts for service. If you are unsure when your septic system was installed, check with DEQ.

This program is voluntary and confidential.

To have a free septic dye test, please contact Mike Mader at TLBP - tlbp@presys.com
