Septic to Sewer Conversion Program
The Bend City Council adopted amendments to the Bend Code on December 19, 2018, to establish the Citywide Septic to Sewer Conversion Program (Link to Bend Code Ordinance). The program is the result of 18 months of work with the Septic to Sewer Advisory Committee and recommendations from the committee. The program is funded through utility rate revenues, and allows residents to apply for roughly $2.5M annually to extend sewer lines into neighborhoods through a Neighborhood Extension Project. The program becomes effective on February 1, 2019. Applications for 2019 are due on February 15, 2019 for construction anticipated during the 2019 construction season.
