Septic Engineering Services Provided In Addition To Septic Installation For Many New Build Properties

Down to Earth Construction Services know that a property does not need to be way out in the county side to need to have a septic system. Before I moved into a home with a septic system I had certainly always just assumed that if a property was in a town or city it would be on town sewer. However I lived in two homes in the city of Attleboro MA both of which were certainly not in the countryside and both of which had septic systems because they were not on town sewer. I discovered that this was not unusual and certainly not the daunting prospect it first seemed when my realtor mentioned it. Increasingly as more and more property is built in New England the number that do not have access to town sewer is rising. Therefore the number of septic installations for new properties is also increasing. Down to Earth Construction Services certainly carry out many septic system installations in the region each year and the number is steadily growing. We also provide the septic engineering which is required before an installation can take place including septic design, soil testing and perc tests. An essential part of a septic system is the leach field and the soil in the leach area needs to be sufficiently permeable so that it can readily absorb the liquid effluent flowing into it. A site must also not have soil that is too permeable, allowing the effluent to reach the groundwater before it is fully treated. Very steep slopes are also unsuitable for a conventional leach field. Also, there must be at least a few feet of good soil from the bottom of the leach pipes to the rock or impervious hardpan below, or to the water table. The perc test provides the data to determine the suitability of a site for a septic system. In general, soils with high sand and gravel content drain the best and soils with a high clay content or solid rock are the worst. Most soils fall somewhere in the middle with a mix of course sand and gravel particles, small silt particles and tiny clay particles. Today we are conducting a perc test for a customer in Attleboro MA who is considering a building plot and needs to know its suitability for a septic system before proceeding. Even if a conventional septic system is not possible, depending on the perc test results, at Down to Earth Construction Services we have experience with alternative septic systems when it seems that a conventional system may not work. We are also providing septic engineering services to customers today in Norton, Seekonk, Rehoboth and Freetown MA.

Septic System Design For Norton Property

Down to Earth Construction Services are providing a septic system design for a customer in Norton MA. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. We have many years experience working in this region and know not only the state septic requirements but also those of the individual towns that we work in. Therefore we can help prevent delays for our customers which often happens if a septic design is not correct or doesn’t follow town BOH regulations. We have recently provided septic designs for customers in Berlin, Lakeville, Upton and Attleboro MA. If you need a septic system design or if you have septic questions please do contact our office in 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com


Septic Designs and Septic Installation Work Even In Winter

Down to Earth Construction Services know that with snow on the ground from previous storms and more expected this weekend many property owners are not considering extensive construction work. Who can excavate in frozen ground and the resulting slush and mud? While it is true that we will not be able to do a septic system installation when the ground is frozen solid what we can do is all of the background paperwork that is required in addition to the physical work. When a property owner requires a septic system installation we can provide the septic designs working with our customer to design a septic system that works for their specific needs and those of their property, budget and the environment. We have extensive experience in this region so we know each individual town’s septic requirements and the state regulations so we can ensure that your septic system will be correct and there will not be delays caused by paperwork problems once work has started. We have recently provided septic designs and septic system installations to customers in Canton, Marlborough, Wrentham and Wayland MA.

Septic Design For Both Commercial And Residential Properties

Down to Earth Construction Services are experienced working with both commercial and residential customers in this region. This is important because the septic system for a busy restaurant will necessarily be different to that for a small seasonal holiday cottage. Both of these customers septic systems will work on the same basic principles however. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. The size and system itself will have variances however which will be specific to the requirements of our customer. These will vary depending on a variety of factors including the environment, the use of the system and budget of our client. Today we have a septic design meeting with a commercial customer whose property is located in North Attleboro MA. We have recently provided septic system designs for residential and commercial customers in Marshfield, Berlin and East Bridgewater MA. If you require a septic design or if you have any questions about septic system designs or septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

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.
