Down to Earth Construction Services Provides Soil Evaluations, PERC Testing And Septic Engineering Services

Down to Earth Construction Services provides soil evaluations, PERC Testing and Septic Engineering services to our clients when requested. 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 Massachusett 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 Swansea 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 Holliston, Raynham and Taunton 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 www.downtoearthconst.com

 

Down To Earth Construction Services Are Available For Your Title 5 Inspection

Down to Earth Construction Services know that as stated on the Massachusetts Official Website of the Executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs:

 

“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.  “

 

Because of this many of our Title 5 Septic Inspections are for property owners who are selling their home or commercial property and need to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection done. We do also have septic inspections scheduled for people who are buying a property and want to have their own inspection done prior to purchase of the property. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections in Upton, Uxbridge, Holliston, Sharon and East Bridgewater MA. Whatever the reason for your Title 5 Inspection do contact our office where we will be happy to schedule an appointment. You can contact us at our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com

“In general:

  • When properties are sold, divided or combined.
  • When there is a change in use or an expansion of a facility.
  • When MassDEP or the local Board of Health requires an inspection.
  • Title 5 requires inspections for large systems, shared systems, and condominiums on a periodic basis.
  • Systems located in cities and towns with MassDEP-approved inspection programs are required to comply with local inspection requirements.

There are exceptions and nuances to the general requirements listed here. For example, no inspection is required if the owner has signed an enforceable agreement with the Board of Health to upgrade the system, connect to a sanitary sewer, or connect to a shared system within two years.” For more information go http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/massdep/water/wastewater/system-inspections-and-property-transfers-faqs.html
