Sarasota County is in the midst of a multiyear utilities project, which began phased construction in 2001, to protect public health and safeguard our environment with the installation of central sewers. The septic system replacement program was initiated to improve wastewater treatment for homes and businesses.
Central sewer lines and other needed infrastructure are being constructed to allow property owners to replace individual septic systems and small, private package wastewater treatment plants in many Sarasota County neighborhoods. About 14,000 septic tanks will be eliminated over the life of the project.
The map below shows the project areas. All properties within those boundaries will be assessed through a Non-ad Valorem assessment on the annual property tax when the work is completed within each neighborhood. See "Customer cost/financial incentives" for more information about the financial impacts to property owners within the project area.
Neighborhood Roads Get Resurfaced
When the central sewer construction is complete, the roads in each area will be resurfaced. This new surface will eliminate potholes, uneven surfaces and the "patchwork" look of existing roads. The resurfacing will increase the life expectancy of the streets and enhance the entire area. If you have any questions, contact us.
