Grants to Upgrade Septic Tanks

I raised the very important, albeit not very glamorous, issue of septic tanks in the Dáil this week and the urgent need to improve inspection rates for both public health and the potential environmental impact that faulty systems can have.

Welcome news earlier this week that the grant for septic tank upgrades as been increased from €5,000 to €12,000 so I would encourage anyone with a septic tank to consider looking into this. I have written to over 500 homes in Wicklow this week to outline the details of the grant but if anybody has any questions, please send me an email to and I will do my best to answer any questions you have.
