Private Sewer Lateral Rebate Program

Pinellas County Utilities is offering one-time rebates to eligible property owners of single-family homes for the cost of inspecting and replacing or rehabilitating (lining) their private sewer lateral (PSL). Rebates will not be provided for point repairs, restoration or maintenance to PSLs.

Single-family homes identified in the red sections of the map may be eligible for PSL rebates.

 Eligible sewer customers who apply for a PSL inspection rebate can receive 100% up to $350 of the inspection cost. 

Eligible sewer customers who apply for a full PSL replacement or rehabilitation rebate can receive 50% up to $3,500 of the cost. 

Rebates are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until funds run out. 

PSLs can break or become defective, which can cause problems like sewage backing up into homes or overflowing into communities and waterways.
