How much will it cost to connect?

Property owners will be responsible for hiring a plumbing contractor to install a grinder pump unit to serve their home as well as the pipes from the home to the grinder unit and from the grinder unit to the main in the street; also to decommission the existing septic tank.  We have contacted some local contractors and are being told this cost would likely be in the range of $15,000 to $20,000 which is similar to the cost of installing a new septic system. Note that every property will be different so owners should contact contractors to get actual quotes. Additionally, a $4,000 sewer availability and $25 permit fee will need to be paid to the Town at the time of connection.
