Septic Upgrade Process

How it Works

1. Free Septic Upgrade Consultation

No Commitments, No Obligations

Your septic upgrade consultation is a free, no-pressure opportunity to speak with one of our experts and determine your eligibility for septic system grants and rebates, discuss your design options, and talk through the process of upgrading your onsite wastewater treatment system.

2. Septic Upgrade Project Funding

Roll of Money on Stone Background.

Grants & Rebates for Septic Systems

In many cases our customers pay absolutely NO money out-of-pocket to replace their septic system with an environmentally friendly Innovative and Alternative On-Site Wastewater Treatment System (I/A OWTS). We handle every step of this process for you, identifying and applying for all of the New York septic grants and rebates for which you qualify.

3. I/A OWTS Septic System Design

Your Property, Your Solution

Upon successfully securing grants and rebates for your septic system, you have the choice of continuing with Bridgewater to pick the right Innovative and Advanced On-site Wastewater Treatment System  (I/A OWTS) for your property through our network of preferred system designers.
