In areas where sewer is not available, septic systems can often be an effective, and environmentally-friendly method for dealing with wastewater. Septic systems are not a one-size-fits-all solution, and each one must be tailor-made to fit the property. Everything from soil-type, land slope, water-table level, nearby wetlands and environmental preserves can affect how a system should be designed.
The below plan was for the design, permitting, and construction of a septic system in Mansfield, prepared in Novermber 2017. The plan details the septic tank, leaching field and distribution box. It also shows the soil and percolation test data.
