Applications Being Accepted for Preventative Plumbing Subsidy

May 28, 2014

Greater Sudbury Council has approved a program amendment that extends eligibility for a municipal preventative plumbing subsidy to all local residential property owners.

Residential property owners who meet eligibility requirements may apply for subsidies covering approximately 50 per cent of the cost to purchase and professionally install a Mainline backwater valve and/or sump pit drainage system, up to a maximum of $1,000 for a backwater valve, $1,250 for a sump pit drainage system or $2,250 for both.

Funding is limited for the preventative plumbing program in 2014. Subsidies will be awarded to eligible residents on a first come, first served basis.
