Down to Earth Construction Services Septic are always willing to provided to information to property owners who have septic systems. One piece of advice is always to not build over your septic system because it can impair your system and can be problematic if you should ever have a septic problem. This is certainly true for our customer today who has a home in Middleboro MA. We are having to move their deck to install a new septic tank for them. Unfortunately when they installed their back deck their contractor did not consider the septic tank underneath which has made a simple septic tank installation much more expensive and it will take longer because their deck needs to be removed to do the installation. Fortunately for our customer Down to Earth Construction Services have the tools and experience to do the removal, excavation and installation. We have recently installed other septic systems including new septic tanks for customers in Westport, Attleboro and Norton MA. If you require a new septic system, septic tank or any other septic work we are more than capable of assisting you and if you have any septic system questions or wish to schedule an appointment please do contact our Norton office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
Down to Earth Construction Services carry out many Title 5 septic inspections for property owners in Massachusetts. Title 5 is the regulation of the Massachusetts State Environmental Code 310 CMR 15.000 which protects communities and environments from the potential hazards of on-site wastewater disposal systems (septic systems). Septic systems are to be properly located, built and maintained to effectively treat wastewater so as not to cause health risks to humans and animals or environmental problems which can result from the pathogenic elements as well as harsh pollutants present in wastewater.
The most common instance for a Title 5 Inspection to be requested from us is when a home or commercial property is being sold and it is required that a septic inspection be carried out. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled in Sharon, Mansfield, Foxboro, Norton, Wrentham and Plainville MA. The seller is typically responsible for arranging and completing the septic system inspection with a licensed Massachusetts Title 5 Inspector.
The times that Title 5 requires a septic inspection are as follows:
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.
When there is a proposed change to the facility which requires a building or occupancy permit.
Any change in the footprint of a building, to make sure that new building construction will not take place on top of any system components or on the system’s reserve area.
For large systems with a design flow of 10,000 to 15,000 gallons per day or more at full build-out, on the basin schedule shown in 310 CMR 15.301(6), and every five years thereafter.
Every 3 years for shared systems.
When the property is divided, or ownership of 2 or more properties is combined.
When MassDEP or the local Board of Health orders an inspection.

Down to Earth Construction Services offer so much more than septic ‘construction’. While we certainly use our experience in this area to provide excavation, septic installation and extensive repairs to septic systems we also have the skills and knowledge for septic engineering tasks such as providing septic designs, soil evaluations, construction layouts and perc tests. Today we have a perc test, or percolation test, for a customer in Norton MA. A perc test evaluates the rate at which water drains through soil. This is extremely important to know before you install a septic system because you need to know the level of liquid absorption into the soil in order to design the system which includes the leach field or drain field, where wastewater percolates back into the soil after the solids have settled into the septic tank. The typical size of a drain field is determined by the expected volume of wastewater to be discharged from the septic system (which is usually estimated based on the size of the proposed building) and of course the speed at which the liquid can drain which is determined by the perc test is essential information. The perc test is conducted by drilling or digging a hole in the ground, pouring water into the hole and then observing the rate at which the water is absorbed into the soil. We have provided other septic engineering services to customers throughout the region including recently in Swansea, Southborough and Bolton MA. If you require septic engineering services or if you have any questions regarding your septic system please do contact our Norton Office on 508-622-5759 or visit www.downtoearthconst.com
