About Savvy Septic


The Savvy Septic Program is your one-stop-shop for financing options, incentives, and education to help you maintain a healthy septic system. Low-interest loans, rebates, and grants to help keep your system functioning properly are available. The program also offers free homeowner workshops on septic maintenance. 

This program is a partnership with the Washington State Department of Ecology, Washington State Department of Health, and Craft3. The Savvy Septic Program is made possible, in part, through a $292,659 Centennial Grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology. The Snohomish County Public Works Surface Water Management Division is contributing nearly $300,000 in matching funds for the pilot program over the next three years. 

Together, we're keeping our water clean by helping Snohomish County residents become Savvy Septic owners.
