Boycott Septic Tank Registration

Alongside attempts to bully people to pay the household tax, Minister Phil Hogan is trying to force through the registration of septic tanks.  But anyone who registers will have their tanks inspected and will then be required to pay for any remedial works. The legislation makes it clear that it will be the responsibility of the owner of the septic tank to carry out any works recommended by the inspector. This could mean a bill for thousands of euro which many simply do not have. Like the Household Tax, we will force the government to listen by making it unworkable.  So don’t register and get involved in the Campaign

The CAHWT calls on septic tank owners to boycott the septic tank registration process which started today.

Due to start on April first, there has been delay after delay in setting the system up until it was sneaked out this week, nearly three months late.

We call on all septic tank owners to refuse to register. Anyone who registers will have their tanks inspected and will then be required to pay for any remedial works. The legislation makes it clear that it will be the responsibility of the owner of the septic tank to carry out any works recommended by the inspector. This could mean a bill for thousands of euro which many simply will not have.

The issue of possible pollution of ground water is a very serious one and it is correct that long overdue action is taken to address it, but the burden should not fall on individual rural dwellers. It would be a better use of public funds for the local authorities to carry out the necessary work instead of continuing to throw billions to the bondholders. Until the government addresses the issue of costs for individual septic tank owners, we advocate a boycott of the registration process.

Like the Household Tax, we will force the government to listen by making it unworkable. Across the country a majority of homeowners have not paid the home tax. We expect the figures for non-registration of septic tanks to be even higher than this given that many in rural Ireland feel they are being picked on by the government
