Our trained experts at Down to Earth Construction Services can assist with all your septic engineering needs. We can provide services to improve or repair your property such as soil evaluations, septic design, land use planning and construction layouts for large or small commercial developments.  We understand the details of septic requirements for Massachusetts and we will work with you and local code enforcement to ensure the design of your new or upgraded septic system will meet all required local laws and code.

We are doing a PERC (percolation) test today for a customer in Fairhaven MA. A perc test, or percolation test, is a soil test that is performed before installing a septic system tank. The perc test is extremely important because it measures the level of liquid absorption of the soil where the proposed septic tank will be located. It determines how quickly the material from the septic system will be absorbed into the soil. We have recently also provided  septic engineering services to clients in Clinton, Fall River, Oxford and Wayland MA. If you would be interested in these services or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-622-5759 or visit


A Title 5 Inspection Does Not Need To Be A Stressful Part Of Moving

Down to Earth Construction Services know that moving house is always a stressful business and try to make one part of the process easier. If you have a septic system you are likely to need a Title 5 Inspection. As stated on the MassGov website:

“a system shall be inspected at or within two years prior to the time of transfer of title to the facility served by the system.  An inspection conducted up to three years before the time of transfer may be used if the inspection report is accompanied by system pumping records demonstrating that the system has been pumped at least once a year during that time.  If weather conditions preclude inspection at the time of transfer, the inspection may be completed as soon as weather permits, but in no event later than six months after the transfer, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing”

Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled in Fairhaven, Fall River, Mattapoisett, Acushnet, Rochester and Marion MA. We have extensive experience conducting Title 5 Inspections in this region so if you need to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions please do contact our office on 508-622-5759 or visit
