A system failure occurs when an existing septic system cannot be fixed or the system cannot be brought into compliance. If you are facing this problem as the owner of the land the system is deployed on, you will have to install a new system. Often times in situations where the septic system has failed the home owners do not have a large enough lot to construct a new system and the owner has few options.
If the soil conditions are suitable and space is available, the land owner may be able to construct a mound system or a sand bioreactor with an onsite irrigation system to replace a failed septic system. For more information on mound, sand bioreactor, or irrigation systems, and if it is an option you need to contact the state of Virginia or the county in which the property is located. All counties including Prince William Va. Fairfax, Va. Arlington, Clark, Va, Fauquier, Va, Warren Va. Or Loudon County Virginia don't have the same codes so it is imperative that you check with the county. If available, a home may be able to connect to a sewer that carries the wastewater to a system that can treat it to protect the public health and the environment. If no other options exist, the property owner may have to rely on a holding tank to collect and pump out sewage at considerable expense to prevent a public health or environmental threat.
