MASSTC SUBAWARD GRANT PROGRAM

Design, Permitting and Construction of Advanced Nitrogen Removing On-site Septic Systems in the SNEP Coverage Area

2022 Announcement and Application for Sub-award under United States Environmental Protection Agency, Southeast New England Program (SNEP)

Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment, through its division of the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC) has been working to develop non-proprietary advanced onsite septic system treatment  technology.  In the past, it has facilitated, using local engineers and installers, the installation of 13 layered systems under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Pilot Approval process. It has more recently tested another wood-based technology which it wishes to install at residences in watersheds that can benefit from the advanced nitrogen-removal capabilities. Through this sub-award process, we are seeking organizations that have the capability to facilitate the installation of pilot systems by locating willing residential homeowner participants, local engineering services and working with installers to pilot this technology in a manner similar to past efforts with the layered denitrification systems.

Under a grant program sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Southeast New England Program (SNEP), Barnstable County is seeking to sub-award grants for up to two non-profit agencies in the amount of  up to $80,000 for the administration of funds for the design, permitting and construction of advanced treatment septic systems at residences in the SNEP area coverage area. This is a sub-award of a grant to the Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment, and non-profit agencies are encouraged to apply here. Applications will be considered and evaluated immediatly.
