Septic Inspections and Voluntary Septic Assessments

Down to Earth Construction Services conducts hundreds of septic inspections each year for property owners who are selling their home or business and are on town sewer. This is because in the state of Massachusetts a septic inspection is required:

“Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward”

 

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

 

However not all inspections that we carryout are for people who are selling a property. We have a voluntary assessment today for a property owner in Mansfield MA who wants to have a greater understanding of the condition of their septic system. As specified on the Mass Gov website:

 

“A system owner may choose voluntarily to have an assessment of the condition of the system even if there is no requirement for an inspection. Results of these voluntary assessments are solely for the use of the owner, and do not need to be submitted to local Boards of Health or MassDEP.”


We also have septic inspections today in Norton, Taunton, Stoughton, Sharon and Foxboro MA. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, or if you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit http://www.downtoearthconst.com

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 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.
