Septic System Services Take Away Any Uncertainly Of Septic System Ownership

Down to Earth Construction Services provides septic system services to our clients who have chosen to take away the any uncertainly of septic system ownership. We will maintain and service your septic system on a regular basis to ensure that it keeps operating correctly and to reduce the likelihood of any expected repairs or failures. The regularity of services depends on a variety of factors including the septic system and the usage it receives. A small beach cottage that only gets used in summer months will not need to be serviced as often as a busy restaurant for example. We usually schedule services either on a quarterly, biannual or annual basis. Today we have septic system services in Rehoboth, Norton, Seekonk, Rochester and Freetown MA.

Cesspool replacement In Acushnet, MA

 

Down To Earth Construction Services are doing a cesspool replacement for a customer in Acushnet, MA today. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. The use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds.  Over time, when the drainage area around the leaching pool becomes saturated, additional pools may have to be dug to handle the volume. Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool which needs to be done regularly. This makes cesspools have high maintenance costs.

In Massachusetts Title 5 does not require Cesspools to be replaced:

“only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded (310 CMR 15.303). Also, cesspools must be upgraded prior to an increase in design flow (e.g., the addition of a bedroom to a home or seats to a restaurant).” The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs

We provide cesspool services, pump out services and cesspool replacement if requested. We have worked with customers in Attleboro, Bridgewater, Raynham, Franklin and Marion MA recently to either replace cesspools which was required because of Title 5 or requested for financial or environmental reasons by the property owner. We have also conducted cesspool services and pumping.

If your property has a cesspool make sure that you work with a company that has extensive experience working with cesspools in Massachusetts. If you have any questions or need to arrange an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
