Do I need an AOSS inspection in Clifton, VA?

The eventual goal of all sewage disposal systems is to purify the effluent before it reaches our waterways. This process is achieved through:

  • Denitrification
  • Phosphorous removal
  • Removal of pathogens and toxins

An Alternative Onsite Sewage System (AOSS) shares similar mechanisms as the conventional systems. However, they differ in that AOSS has some secondary treatment method, which helps purify the effluent more before discharging it to the soil. 

Alternative systems also have added mechanical and technical components that require regular monitoring and maintenance. That’s why you need an AOSS inspection in your Clifton VA home to ensure that the system is always functioning as designed. 

It’s Crucial to Choose Professionals When You Need an AOSS Inspection in Clifton VA

At SES, we have training, expertise, and resources to carry out comprehensive AOSS inspections. We have decades of experience in operation and maintenance, system specification, design, and inspections. 

Our team may involve soils scientists, wastewater treatment consultants, expert system inspectors, and other licensed professional engineers during the inspection. During such a time, we may also carry out laboratory and onsite analysis, labeled by Virginia Department of Health (VDH) regulations as formal and informal testing.

After the inspection, we may advise on further operation and maintenance services. The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) has set operations and maintenance requirements to ensure that your Alternative Onsite Septic System (AOSS) functions appropriately. 

The operation and maintenance costs will vary depending on the type of AOSS you have. It will also depend on the level of operation and maintenance (O&M) needed for the system. The operation and maintenance for a particular system are based on the system design and the date it was permitted. To determine the requirements for your AOSS, you may consult:

  • The designer of the system
  • A licensed AOSS operator
  • The local health department
