Lowndes County Septic System Program

The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) received a $2.2 million allocation of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to help low-income homeowners install or replace failing septic systems. This initial phase of the program is available only in Lowndes County. ADPH's Bureau of Environmental Services is working with community partners to provide residents with access to appropriately designed, ADPH-permitted sewage disposal systems.
