Onsite Sewage System Design in South Riding VA; What You Need To Know

An onsite sewage system allows for the efficient disposal of household waste. It enables the separation and breakdown of solid waste. You can also eliminate pathogens that you may find in the wastewater due to impurities, fecal matter, and so much more.  The pathogens are disease-causing organisms that could impact your health and that of your family. 

When choosing your sewage system, you must ensure that:-

  • The size is big enough to handle the amount of waste that you generate within your household
  • You choose the best type for you. The conventional system typically consists of a chamber treatment tank and drain field. There are, however, other options, and the contracting company should advise you appropriately.
  • The soil condition in the drain field should allow for quick draining of water. Clay soil, for example, tends to waterlog. You shall have pools of water in the drain field that can be potentially harmful to the environment and you.
  • The contracting company also advises on the best place to set up the sewage system.  It should not be too near to the house. In case of a system failure, the water flows out of the top of the tank. It may end up flooding the surrounding area, and you do not want to deal with the smell coming from the tank. You also want to avoid exposure to disease-causing pathogens. The contractors also keep clear of areas with too many trees because of root damage. 
  • There are also regulatory requirements that you must comply with.  Such include septic tank permit, building permit, water rights permit amongst others. It is easier to let the contracting company handle such for you.  With so many years in the industry, we have solid networks that can help expedite some processes.
