Do you have a failing or non-complying ISTS or septic system on your property?
If so, we have good news for you! Scott County has started a low interest loan program with the help of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture Best Management Practices loan program. The County can now offer loans to property owners within the county that have a failing or non-compliant septic system, with interest rates from 0% to 3%, depending on your household income.
The only qualifications for this program are you must be the property owner, your County property taxes must be current (do not owe any back taxes), and your septic system is considered failing by Scott County. The loan is for ten years and it is payable with your property taxes. For more information about the loan process, see attachment below.

If you would like an application or more information please contact Mary VonEschen at 952-496-8344.
Please keep in mind that you must apply through this program and have your loan approved before any replacement and/or repair work is performed on your septic system!
