Septic Engineering Services Provided In Addition To Septic Construction Services

Down to Earth Construction Services offer so much more than septic ‘construction’. While we certainly use our experience in this area to provide excavation, septic installation and extensive repairs to septic systems we also have the skills and knowledge for septic engineering tasks such as providing septic designs, soil evaluations, construction layouts and perc tests. Today we have a perc test, or percolation test, for a customer in Attleboro MA. A perc test evaluates the rate at which water drains through soil. This is extremely important to know before you install a septic system because you need to know the level of liquid absorption into the soil in order to design the system which includes the leach field or drain field, where wastewater percolates back into the soil after the solids have settled into the septic tank. The typical size of a drain field is determined by the expected volume of waste water to be discharged from the septic system (which is usually estimated based on the size of the proposed building) and of course the speed at which the liquid can drain which is determined by the perc test is essential information. The perc test is conducted by drilling or digging a hole in the ground, pouring water into the hole and then observing the rate at which the water is absorbed into the soil. We have provided other septic engineering services to customers throughout the region including recently in Southborough, West Bridgewater and Berlin MA. If you require septic engineering services or if you have any questions regarding for septic system please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

A Leach Field Under A Driveway Requires Excavation To Be Repaired

Down to Earth Construction Services have been contacted by a customer in Lakeville who has a leach field problem. Their home’s leach field has had a driveway installed that covers their leach field. As stated by the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

“Impervious areas such as driveways or parking lots restrict air passing through the soils. In addition, the weight of the cars can compact the soil and may break distribution pipes. Lack of oxygen prevents the degradation of the septic tank effluent in the soil, and compaction reduces flow, making the system likely to clog and fail. Soil absorption systems which are placed under driveways are required, by 310 CMR 15.240 (7), to be vented to the atmosphere. Additional standards apply to system components in areas where automobile or other heavy equipment is anticipated.”

Their leach field does not have the venting as stated and compacting has resulted in distribution pipes breaking when large heavy vehicles were mistakenly parked on the driveway. Down to Earth Construction Services have the excavation equipment necessary for this septic repair and have the qualified operators that ensure that the repair is done correctly and with as little disruption as possible. We have other septic repairs scheduled today in Sharon, Mansfield, Taunton, Raynham and Norton MA. If you require a septic repair, excavation work, or have any questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
