If you are looking to obtain a septic system permit, the list and protocol of how to get there can be overwhelming. Here is a brief description of what we can do for you...
We will do the research ahead of time to find out anything and everything we can about your site. We will check county records that are available on line and those that are not. Once we are at your site, we have a long list of County and State guidelines to follow. We do not do any fancy contracts. We believe that a handshake should seal our agreement.
After we know where you plan build, we will dig several backhoe holes to determine the soil type. The costs of a septic system can vary greatly, so sometimes is necessary to dig in different areas. We prepare the soils evaluation with our packet required for the County to review. This process typically takes a week to two weeks, but sometimes more with complex sites.
After we have our soils evaluation, we can design your system for your specific site based on the type of soil we found. Our designs include many calculations, drawings and any unique requirements for the installation of your septic system. This process typically takes a week, but sometimes more with complex sites.
REVIEW AND PERMIT
Once we have completed the design, we can submit our soils evaluations and our design packet to the County for review. Their review process typically takes between a week and a month. After the design is reviewed and approved, a permit can be issued.
Once we have a permit, you are able to hire an installer. A typical septic system can be installed in about a day. The electrical wiring, inspections and backfill will however add time to the project.
