A septic design is a set of site plans and construction details to build an onsite wastewater system. The plan accounts for soil conditions, topography, the buildings, and future serviceability. We also handle the plan submittal and communication with the Health Department.

We offer complete septic system designs for builders and building owners. A poorly-designed septic system can be the source of never-ending problems for owners and neighbors. We have experience designing systems that are reliable, long-lasting and compliant with all state and local standards. When you’re in need of septic design services, call Earth Excavating. Our Septic Design Services Include:

  • On-site evaluation
  • Requirements collection
  • Percolation Testing
  • Topographic surveys
  • System designs and information to meet state and local regulations

We look at all available technologies that we feel will be the best fit for your property. We have designed and/or installed mound systems, gravity and pressurized trench systems, aerobic treatment units(ATUs), drip dispersal systems, peat filter systems, and textile filter systems.

Some of the many considerations that go into a septic system design include:
  • How the system will blend with the site landscaping plan.
  • What the future use of the property will be.
  • Setback distances from bodies of water.
  • Distance from structures and wells onsite and the adjoining properties.
  • Making sure the system is sized appropriately for the expected water use.
What to expect in the design process:

Our design process starts with a meeting or conversation with the owner to determine what their expectations are for the property and to help them envision what they want their property to look like in the future.
