C3 Excavation’s Process for A
New Septic System Installation in Tuscarawas County, Ohio.

While installing a septic system, please note that not all properties can sustain a septic system. If your property cannot support one, contact a soil scientist to determine the best solution. C3 Excavation requires you to follow local, state, and federal regulations. It is best if you work with your local health department to meet their standards before they declare the system operational. Here are the steps required before installing a new septic system.

Before excavating for a septic system installation, get the necessary paperwork and permits. Paperwork involves getting a legal address and a work permit. Get a legal address by filling out an application with your local municipality. You can also register on the provincial land registry. Once you register your legal address, you apply for a work permit from the Ministry of Natural Resources. Please include relevant information, such as the size of the project and its location, in your application.

The next step is to organize a site visit and create a septic design plan. A site visit allows the contractor or engineer to evaluate the property's existing conditions. They determine any obstacles they must address, such as underground utility lines. They will then develop an overall design plan for the project. The septic design plan should consider soil quality, system size, and layout factors. Consider potential leaching areas, surface drainage patterns, and access points. Contractors use this information to estimate project costs and timelines. It also ensures they follow applicable regulations during the excavation process.

Before starting a septic tank excavation, the third step is arranging for soil samples and evaluation. Certified soil scientists collect samples from the proposed excavation site. They check the quality of the soil and its suitability for a septic system. This testing determines the best location for the design. It also determines the type of tank and field components that work well in the given environment. Other site conditions to consider include underground utility lines and surface drainage patterns. Consider the general landscaping and access points. All these variables affect how efficiently the septic system functions over time.

The final step is drafting a system design and budget estimates based on the soil sample evaluation. Contractors use information from the soil sample tests to draw up an appropriate design for the septic system. The system design considers factors such as leaching areas and access points. It also considers the system size, layout, and surface drainage pattern to determine the best configuration. Based on this information, accurate budget estimates can be made for the materials and labor required to complete the project.
