Project Overview

The German-Jefferson Subordinate Service District Board (board) completed a voluntary septic inventory through the Clean Water Fund in 2013. 344 out of 754 parcels participated in the inventory. Approximately 50% of the septic systems were found to be non-compliant with MN Rules Chapter 7080. That project included an assessment of septic systems on non-participating properties that identified eleven priority areas in populated communities with small lots. Three community feasibility studies out of the eleven priority areas were conducted.

The goal of this project is to begin implementation on the remaining eight priority areas. The project objective is to identify feasible, cost effective solutions for new wastewater infrastructure to replace failing and/or aging septic systems. The assessment is a significant tool for the service board to use to complete its septic ordinance and to expedite bringing noncompliant septic systems into compliance in the service district.
