Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 by Francine Maglione


Good news for Des Moines homeowners looking to make an improvement to their water system in their house. The city has established a rebate for property owners that have a licensed professional redirect one or more of the eligible sources of water infiltration and inflow to an outlet other than the sanitary sewer system. This includes sump pump installation in Des Moines, which is a service that Midwest Basement Systems is able to reliably provide to homeowners.

Under the program, the city of Des Moines will make a Private Property Protection Program reimbursement of up to $1,000. The work must be performed and completed between June 1, 2008, and June 30, 2014 to be eligible for the rebate. The following work is eligible:

  • The installation or redirection of a sump pump to discharge flows from foundation drains and area drains to a non-sanitary sewer outlet such as a rain garden, storm sewer, or the ground surface.
  • The disconnection of roof leaders from the sanitary sewer service.
  • The installation of backwater valve.

The work must be an improvement to an existing home located in Des Moines and must be performed by a licensed plumber. Get more information on the rebate here: http://www.dmgov.org/Departments/PublicWorks/Pages/PrivatePropProtectProg.aspx
