Fauquier County AOSE Soil & Site Evaluation (Perc Test) to Permit Replacement Drainfield Construction
This April 2017 project was for a property in The Plains, Virginia. We were contacted to find an area to replace the aged and deteriorated septic system components. The On-Site Soil Evaluator soil evaluation as required by the state of Virginia includes measuring depth to root limiting restrictions, water table, paralithic/lithic bedrock, soil horizons, soil texture, soil color, and identifying fill material. The site evaluation includes locating an area outside of the required setback of wells, cisterns, springs, ponds, etc. Local requirements including Chapter 17 of the Fauquier County Ordinances are also met. After the evaluation is complete, we will prepare the conventional design plans and coordinate with the client to procure a Virginia Department of Health Septic System Repair Permit. When the new system is installed, we will inspect the system to insure the components comply with the sewage handling and disposal regulations. An OSE report and As-Built Drawing will be supplied to Virginia Department of Health for an Operation’s Permit.
