OSE Soil Evaluation for a Conventional Gravity Fed Drainfield | Rappahannock Co.
Generally, soil in Rappahannock County, Virginia treats primary effluent from conventional drainfields. This June 2015 project supported this claim. Gravelly coarse sandy loam with highly weathered disintegrated coarse-grained gneiss characterizes the dominant Brandywine soil series. A conventional primary and 100% reserve drainfield was staked to accommodate a 4 bedroom house and a barn/loft apartment. The four corners of each drain field and a safe/sanitary site was staked. A survey location of these plats will show the position of the drainfields on the tract. With coordination of the surveyor, we will base our system specifications, design calculations and drawings from the plats. All Virginia Department of Health required paperwork will be submitted to the Rappahannock County Health Department and the Environmental Health Specialist will issue a permit to construct the proposed sewage disposal system and water supply.
