Foundation Drain Disconnect Program
Montgomery County Environmental Services created the Foundation Drain Disconnect Program to help protect homeowners against sewer backups and prevent "clean" storm water from entering the sanitary sewer system. The program provides up to $4,000 in financial assistance for plumbing upgrades to help protect your home from sewer backups. Homeowners who have a living area or basement located below ground level may be eligible for the program.
Typical eligible plumbing work and improvements may include:
installing plumbing and valves to prevent backups;
disconnecting all downspouts, stairwell, floor, foundation, and sump drains from the sanitary sewer;
or installing a sump pump and wet well.
