Replacing a failed septic system is costly. Installing a new mound system or drain field can cost $10,000 to $20,000 or even more. This is especially a concern in Anoka County near large bodies of water like Coon Lake and area wetlands. Homeowners with failing systems often delay replacing systems due to the expense which can contaminate groundwater and neighboring wells.
There is assistance for septic and well replacement in Anoka County. The Agricultural Best Management Practices Loan (AgBMP) is part of a water quality program that provides LOW INTEREST LOANS to land owners for replacing subsurface sewage treatment systems (SSTS) that can be repaid as a special assessment on annual taxes. There are no income restrictions on these loans but there is an application and review process to assess whether the system meets the priority replacement criteria. What does this mean? If the system a direct risk to public health, contaminating surface water or in a highly sensitive area, it will likely meet the criteria.
The loan program is also available to replace private wells.
