Onsite Wastewater System Design

Initially this was our core service and continues to be one of our primary focuses.  Since we have designed over 10,000 systems of all types, we bring a wealth of experience to handle difficult circumstances. 

  • System types include:

- Inground

- Elevated Sand Mound Bed

- At-Grade

- Drip Irrigation

- A/B Soil System  (shallow limiting zone at-grade bed, with disinfection)

-  Drip Micromound

-  Stream Discharge

 - Spray Irrigation

We have experience in the latest technology including components such as Ecoflow Peat Filters, American Manufacturing Drip Irrigation Systems, Orenco AdvanTex Systems, and Eljen Geotextile Sand Filters.  We can also prepare designs to receive Leadership in Environmental and Engineering Design (LEED)  credits.

We try to offer a variety of choices to our clients when possible and help select the best option based on the site conditions and their needs.
