Reimbursement grants available for elimination of connections that transmit surface or ground water to the wastewater collection system
The Town of Berryville American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 Implementation Plan provides for reimbursement of costs incurred when eliminating connections that transmit surface or ground water runoff to the Town’s wastewater collection system. Funding in the amount of Twenty- thousand dollars ($20,000) has been reserved for this effort.
This program is offered to eliminate unpermitted connections to the Town’s wastewater collection system and thereby reduce flow within the collection system and to the wastewater treatment plant.
At the end of the grant period (December 15, 2022), the Town will begin enforcement efforts to compel property owners to eliminate such connections. These enforcement efforts may include the filing of charges for violation of §17-37(g) of the Berryville Code. Violation of this code section constitutes a class 2 misdemeanor.
While the Town will initiate its concerted enforcement efforts after December 15, 2022, it will not forgo enforcement efforts in this regard prior to that date should it deem such actions necessary.
Eligibility period: August 16, 2021 to December 15, 2022
Reimbursement limit: $750 per structure

The Town reserves the right to terminate or alter this program at any time without notice; however, reimbursement agreements completed prior to the date of program end or alteration will be honored (explained in more detail in the Building Sewer Connection Reimbursement Agreement). Further, when funds allotted for this purpose have been either expended and/or committed, no additional reimbursement agreements will be approved.
