Online Application Form


The Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District (the District) is pleased to publish a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Residential Septic System Repair Services. The District is requesting applications from DEQ licensed septic contractors, new or who were previously listed, who are qualified to perform work associated with residential septic system repairs and/or replacement of such systems.

The District intends to develop a referral list (List of Pre-qualified Contractors) to give to homeowners who are participating in the District’s Residential Septic System Repair Grant and Loan Programs.

Apart from pre-qualifying installers, the District’s sole role in the program is to provide funding. The property owner will select an installer from the List of Pre-qualified Contractors, and the District will disburse funds for the installer’s work. The District shall have no contractual relationship with any pre-qualified installer, nor shall the District manage, supervise, or approve any work performed by any installer.

All work performed must be permitted and approved by the Clackamas County Septic and Onsite Wastewater Program office and receive a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion. Payment to any single installer shall be subject to program limits. Inclusion on the List is not a guarantee that the installer will be chosen by homeowners to perform work, nor is it intended to guarantee an installer’s performance.

All applications must be received by 4:00 pm on May 31, 2024

The District will review applications against several criteria, including the installer’s current DEQ licenses, experience, references, and capacity to perform repairs and serve the target area. Each applicant will be notified as to whether they have qualified to be included on the List of Pre-qualified Contractors.

The List will remain in effect until June 30, 2027, or upon the contractor’s license expiration or if their business is dissolved. Individual contractors may be removed from the List at the sole discretion of the District. All applications become the property of the District for use in administering the program.

Questions and Requests for clarification must be received by 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 20, 2024.
