SEPTIC MANAGEMENT BETTERMENT PROGRAM
The Town of Ipswich invites homeowners with failed septic systems to apply for a Betterment Loan under the Town’s Septic Management Betterment Program. The proceeds of a $200,000.00 loan from the Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection are being utilized to help homeowners comply with Title 5, 310 CMR 15.000 of the State Environmental Code by providing financial assistance to homeowners to upgrade or repair their septic system. The goal of the Betterment Program is to protect the public health, safety, welfare and the environment through the repair, replacement and/or upgrade of failed systems.
The Ipswich Public Health Department is hosting a Blood Pressure Clinic on Wednesday, December 11th from 10-11:30 at 6 Caroline Avenue in the Community Hall. Open to the public and free of charge.
