Experts in Septic Design, Installation and Inspection

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services had a septic system installation in Rochester, MA starting yesterday.  Our client  initially needed a septic design for a septic system because they needed to replace a failing cesspool on their property.  We have the experience and knowledge to provide a septic design that was tailored to their individual needs and those of their property. Yesterday we started the septic system installation because our client chose to continue to use our services. They are confident in our professionalism and ability to install their system quickly and correctly with minimum disruption.  We have the equipment and operators for the excavation,  groundworks and total installation without needing to use a subcontractor so we can ensure that the installation is done to our exacting standards. We will also provide regular septic system services following the installation. We have recent experience with septic system installations in Oxford, Uxbridge, Marlborough, and Mattapoisett, MA.  If you need a septic system installation or if you have any questions please do contact us.

Down to Earth Construction Services also have septic inspections scheduled today in Berkley, Dighton, Norton, Freetown, Fall River, Fairhaven, Acushnet, and Mattapoisett, MA.  Most of the septic inspections that we do are for properties which are being sold.  However, we also have an inspection today for a property which has had an addition which included two bedrooms.  As specified by The Official Website of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs of Massachusetts:

“A system must be inspected upon any change of use or increase in design flow, BUT ONLY IF the change or expansion also requires a building permit or occupancy permit from the local building inspector. Examples include adding a bedroom to a house, adding seats to a restaurant, or changing the type of business operating at a commercial location. Check with the Building Department and/or Board of Health to find out if your situation requires a building or occupancy permit which will trigger a system inspection.

 

Any change in the footprint of a building also requires an inspection to determine the location of the system, to ensure that construction will not be located on top of any system components or on the reserve area. If official records are available to determine the location of the system components, this requirement may be waived. Check with your local Board of Health.
If you need to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our office at 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

Title 5 Inspections by Down to Earth Construction

Down to Earth Down to Earth Construction Services has septic inspections scheduled today in West Bridgewater, Raynham, Seekonk, Taunton, Freetown, and Mattapoisett, MA.  A property owner or facility operator is generally responsible for obtaining an inspection of the system. If you are buying a property, Title 5 requires that a copy of the inspection report be provided to the buyer or other person acquiring title to the property served by the system.  The inspection is intended to provide sufficient information to make a determination as to whether or not the system in its current condition is adequate to protect public health and the environment.  The inspection, however, is not a guarantee that the system will continue to function adequately and is not a guarantee that the system will not fail at a later date.  However the owner or operator of the system is the legally responsible party required to upgrade a failing system.  Prior to transfer of the property, this is typically the seller. Often, the buyer and seller work out the financial issues as part of the sale of the property. Title 5 does not require that a system be in passing condition prior to the sale, but most lenders will not issue a mortgage until the failing system is upgraded or funds to perform the upgrade are escrowed . If you are selling a property with a septic system in Massachusetts, it is likely that you will need to have a Title 5 Inspection to be carried out.  If you need more information or wish to schedule an appointment 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
