Public Works Sanitary Sewer Overflow Prevention Grant Program


The Risk Management staff at OMAG is pleased to announce a new grant to prevent sanitary sewer overflows (SSO’s) due to root intrusions. OMAG has teamed with Duke’s Root Control, Inc. for the use of their product, service, and guarantee.

The root control product is guaranteed for two years against sanitary sewer overflows in treated lines due to roots.  If retreatment is needed in the same line(s) during the guarantee period the next application is guaranteed for three years.  Additionally, any sanitary sewer overflows in treated lines are eligible for retreatment free of charge.

This grant is a 1:1 MATCHING FUNDS grant that is limited to a maximum of $5,000 per year per OMAG member. The grant means OMAG will pay one dollar for every dollar the municipality pays for Duke’s product, service, and guarantee up to $5,000.  Grants range from $500 to $5,000 per OMAG member per year. This grant is available until OMAG budgeted funds are depleted. To apply for this grant, complete the application below.
