Septic system design is not something most people think about very often. However, good septic system design principles can give you a long-lasting, effective, and responsive septic system that will cause less stress and cost less over the long term.

Septic System Design and Your Property

Septic System Design

  • Location – Where will the system be installed? Considering where on the property the tank and the drain field will be placed is extremely important. Consider where wastewater leaves the building, where the drain field is best placed for drainage, and the distance from the septic tank to the drain field, as well as the type of soil on the property and the necessary size of the drainage field. Good septic system design will also take into account any slope that might be on the property, as well as the relationship to other properties and the local water table.
  • Regulation – What permits and regulations are needed to install, retrofit, or alter an existing septic system? These can vary greatly, so it’s essential to submit fully realized and carefully prepared plans to the local office responsible for approval. Plans prepared in this way face fewer delays and less chance of rejection or modification.
  • Implementation – Even the best septic system design means nothing if the plans aren’t executed according to specification. Working with an experienced firm like Southern Water and Soil will benefit your project, your property, and the environment.
