Loudoun County AOSE Soils Evaluation & Conventional Septic System Design
This property is located at the base of the Catoctin Mountain, in Loudoun County, Virginia. The purchaser recently contracted DPOR licensed AOSE Barry Hadley. A 5 bedroom primary and reserve drain field was located. The required soils evaluation determined soil characteristics, depth to rock, depth to seasonal water table and estimated percolation rate. The percolation rate combined with area formulas yielded the square footage required for the lateral lines. A gravity fed conventional septic system was designed for installation.
A VDH construction permit packet and application included the site and soil evaluation report, soil descriptions, permit form, design calculations, system specifications, site sketch and sanitary survey. The construction permit packet was reviewed by the Loudoun County Environmental Health Department and approved for issuance of a septic system construction permit.
