SEPTIC FIELD (SYSTEM) DESIGN: BRITISH COLUMBIA

 

 

The design of a system for your property requires site visits, soil testing, an assessment of the building occupancy and use, and the creation of a site plan, detail drawings and specifications.

 

In the planning process of your system, we will:

 

 -Evaluate the soil conditions of your property.

 -Take soil samples for testing.

 -Test your soil permeability.

 -Determine the grade of the slope.

 -Evaluate the number of factors related to the building structure and occupancy.

 -Determine setbacks to property lines, wells, lakes and other factors required for the design of your system.

 -Determine the area available for dispersal and receiving areas.

 

-After completing the tasks above, we will select one or more feasible systems. We always start from the simplest system and work    from there.

 

-If two or more systems of similar estimated cost are feasible, we will contact you to discuss your options.

 

-We prepare site and soil evaluation report, draw plans and write specifications compliant with

 Interior Health requirements (LARGE FILE !).

 

-We can also file 'Record of Sewage System' with Interior Health so you can obtain your Building Permit.

The cost of design is divided between site assessment and preparation of plans and specifications.

 

The first part involves excavating test pits, performing permeability tests and various site measurements.

 

The second part require analyzing soil samples and other available data, selecting the best-suited system and preparing drawings, specifications and other filing documents required by Interior Health.

 

As a guideline, the cost of the above work (including excavating) usually does not exceed $1,500+GST for Type 1 or Type 2 systems.

Type 3 systems require engineering and are quoted on case by case bases.
