SSTS Low Income Grant

Le Sueur County was awarded funds to help prevent, reduce, and eliminate pollutants in groundwater and surface water from subsurface sewage treatment systems (SSTS). The low-income grant program assists landowners with the financial costs that are required to design, install, repair, and replace a SSTS on residential property that has been deemed an imminent threat to public health or is failing to protect groundwater.  TLe Sueur County received an extension for this grant, and it is now set to expire on December 31, 2021.  There are still grant funds available.  To find out more, please click on the links below or contact Holly Kalbus email: and phone number: 507-357-8540.
