State Septic System Replacement Fund Program


The Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017 established the State Septic System Replacement Fund (Fund). The purpose of this Fund is to replace existing cesspools and septic systems that are having significant and quantifiable environmental and/or public health impacts to groundwater used for drinking water, or to a threatened or impaired waterbody.  

The Fund is administered by EFC (Environmental Facilities Corporation) and is authorized to reimburse property owners for up to 50% of the eligible costs incurred for eligible septic system projects, up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000).
