Cloquet offers sewer line grants
April 21, 2023
Got a home sewer line that repeatedly backs up from roots? The City of Cloquet is offering a grant program for homeowners who need to upgrade or repair leaky or decaying lateral sewer lines running from the home to main sewer lines.
The grants are part of a program to reduce the problems of clean water inflow and infiltration into the sanitary sewer system, which can overwhelm the system during heavy rain events and cause overflows of untreated sewer water.
The program offers financial assistance of 80 percent of costs up to $4,000 for the repairs, to be reimbursed after completion of the project. There is money for up to 20 grants per year. All grants must be approved by the city in advance of the work being done.
