SOIL EVALUATION FOR SEPTIC SYSTEMS

SOIL EVALUATIONS PRIOR TO SETPIC INSTALLATION

Informed Septic System Services

Are you planning on installing a septic system on your property? Before doing so, it’s imperative to determine if the soil that the septic tank will be built in and around can effectively absorb liquid waste. You’ll need to have a soil evaluation performed to ensure you are installing in the right spot.

NAVIGATING THE SOIL EVALUATION PROCESS

Importance of Soil Evaluation for Septic System Installation

The end result of a septic system is the release of processed wastewater into the soil surrounding the tank via the system’s drain field. However, if the soil isn’t capable of absorbing this constant stream of processed wastewater efficiently, it can lead to costly repairs.

Conducting a Soil Evaluation

Before installing a septic system, a soil evaluation needs to be done. This evaluation determines the condition of the soil surrounding the intended tank location. Ideally, well-drained sandy soil is best for a drain field, but due to the high variation in soil, it’s imperative for the plotted land to feature model soil.

Preparation and Process

Preparing for a soil evaluation involves several steps, including providing a boundary drawing of the property. Miller’s Services assists in facilitating this process. During the evaluation, holes are dug in the proposed septic system area to assess soil quality. Evaluators look for characteristics such as absence of water and various topographical patterns.

Evaluation Results and Next Steps

Soil evaluations may yield different outcomes: approval, denial, or the need for further evaluation. If the proposed area is denied, Miller’s Services offers alternative options. Clients typically receive notification of the evaluation outcome within days.
