Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District efforts to address failing septic systems (08/15/2012)
Clean Water Fund Grant Application

Just because something is buried underground doesn’t mean that it is safe for you or the environment. Septic systems can cause significant problems when they begin to fail. They can allow for disease-causing pathogens to enter surface or ground water, making it unsafe for consumption or recreation. They can also contribute to algae and plant growth in nearby streams and lakes.

The Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is currently working on a Clean Water Fund grant proposal to help landowners address this environmental and health threat. Qualifying applicants may receive up to 95% Cost-Share for the voluntary replacement of their failing septic systems if the SWCD is funded by the State. Priority for grants under the SSTS Cost-Share Program will be given to systems that are deemed an “imminent threat to public heath” and meet the local low income criteria and thresholds as established by the Winona County SWCD.

If your household income levels fall into either of these categories and you would be interested in applying for these program dollars, please contact Bree Maki at the Winona County Soil and Water Conservation District (507) 523-2171 ext. 101 or brein.maki@winonaswcd.com. Please be prepared to provide your name and telephone number, as we will need to gather some basic information from you for preparing our grant application. This preliminary application does not guarantee funding. If the SWCD is awarded funding for this proposal, we will need to have you submit an application for these funds and provide proof of income based upon the previous two years of income tax returns.

Applicants must be the owner and the occupier of the residence. Preliminary applications will be taken until August 17, 2012.
