SSTS Low Income Grant (2023)

Le Sueur County has recently been 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.  

Please note two landowners are already working with the Environmental Services Department for this grant; therefore, grant funds may be limited.  An update will be provided at a later date once both landowners have executed a cost-share contract with Le Sueur County.
