Septic Design Consultation by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have a design consultation in our Norton, MA, office with a customer today who needs a septic system design for his home in Bridgewater, MA, because he is adding an addition with two additional bedrooms.  We have extensive experience designing septic systems for clients which will work for their individual needs and environment.  An addition with extra bedrooms means that the water usage in the home will increase, so the septic system needs to be able to support this.  If you need to have a septic system designed, or if you have any questions about this process, please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Services by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services have experience working with customers whose properties have cesspools. 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.  Cesspools must be treated to avoid harmful chemicals from forming and also to empty the pool.  This is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance. Cesspools can also be harmful.  For example, if the cesspool is kept at a very deep level, it may come in contact with groundwater and contaminate it making it unsafe for drinking purposes. That is why cesspools are kept quite far away from the wells and underground water sources.  The cesspools may also prove to be dangerous because of the fact that the waste material may give rise to dangerous fumes.  We are starting a cesspool replacement today for a customer in Upton, MA whose cesspool failed a Title 5 Inspection because it was too close to a public water supply.  Title 5 does not require all Cesspools to be replaced but it does state that:

 

“ 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 Massachusetts.
We also have cesspool services for customers in Bridgewater, Stoughton, Canton, Freetown, and Sharon, MA.  If you have a cesspool and are either considering a replacement or need a service please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Cesspool Repacement

Septic Preservation Services Septic Preservation 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 is the reason which makes a cesspool require a high cost of maintenance.

 

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, Sturbridge, Marion and Westford, MA recently to either replace cesspools which were 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 office at 877-378-4279 or visit www.septicpreservation.com
