Hood Septic-to-Sewer Conversion

Hood Septic-to-Sewer Conversion Project

Overview

Welcome to the Hood Septic-to-Sewer Conversion Project webpage. Here you will find project information, updates, resources, and more.

For decades, Hood property owners have relied on septic systems to dispose of sewage. These systems pose a number of environmental challenges, and some systems may no longer be in compliance with Sacramento County Code and State requirements.

In 2018, SacSewer identified a grant program through the State of California that could potentially pay for the construction and connection costs to convert Hood’s residential properties to sewer service. 

During initial community outreach, many homeowners expressed interest in converting from septic to sewer service. Based on that support, SacSewer proceeded with the application to secure the State Grant. While projected funding shortfalls initially made the project’s viability uncertain, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors approved American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to help offset the costs of design and engineering. As a result, SacSewer is now proceeding with the design phase for the project.

Though there is still much work to be done and full State funding for construction is yet to be secured, if most property owners express interest in connecting to sewer service, state funding approval could be forthcoming in 2023-24.
