Clean Water Loan Impacts

Clean Water Loans help property owners invest in septic system upgrades that enable them to remain in their homes. Properly treated waste water reduces sources of disease and contamination in local waterways. By enabling borrowers to hire local septic professionals, the Clean Water Loan supports small businesses and creates jobs. 

As of September 30, 2013, Craft3: 

  • Helped 409 property owners repair their failing septic systems;
  • Made over $9 million in Clean Water Loans;
  • Treated 49 million gallons of waste water; and
  • Contributed to the improvement of local shellfish harvest areas.

In 2009, a Performance Assessment was conducted by an independent third-party research company. Check it out to learn about the outcomes of the Clean Water Loan and what our customers, designers, installers and pumpers say about us.
