Subsurface Sewage Treatment Systems (SSTS) Loans for NonCompliant Systems

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture - Best Management Practices (Ag-BMP) Loan Program provides low-interest financing for noncompliant systems, providing certain eligibility requirements are met. Loans are not available for SSTS that have already been installed.

To obtain a low-interest loan from Blue Earth County, approval is needed from two local agencies, Blue Earth County Soil and Water Conservation District and Blue Earth County Property and Environmental Resources. Application forms are provided by each office. Approval is required prior to the installation of an SSTS.
