Steps for Replacement:

The first step towards a replacement septic system is to have a site review completed through your local health department. The site review determines what type of septic system you would be approved for replacement; either an on-lot (drip, mound, peat, spray) or an off-lot (NPDES) septic system. The county inspectors will observe land contours and land characteristics during the site review to determine if it’s feasible to fit an on-lot system. If it is feasible, the inspector will inform you of the next step in the process, contacting a certified soil scientist for an analysis to determine if the soil if adequate for a septic replacement. If an on-lot septic system is not feasible, then the health department will advise the off-lot NPDES system (discharging into a storm sewer or river).

Residential & Commercial Septic System Cleanings

During the cleaning of your septic or aeration system, our technician will inspect the sludge and water levels in each tank, clean the aerator shaft, and note the condition of the tanks, risers, lids on risers, baffles, and tees.

A pumping report form is submitted to the local health department upon completion of cleaning. 

The average residential septic system should be cleaned or "pumped" out by a licensed hauler every 2-4 years depending on the size of the systems (gallons), household occupancy, and water usage. The cost of a cleaning is dependent upon the number of gallons pumped, location of the system, and access to the lids. 


Please submit a request below if you are unsure of the size of your septic system. A member of our knowledgeable staff will be in touch promptly after corresponding with your local health district. 

Cleaning your septic tank or system helps ensure your system continues to function properly, and prevents the occurrence of emergency back ups/overflows of water and sewage effluent inside your home or yard, and the financial burden of costly repairs and early system failure.
