Septic System Design
When we start to design a septic system, we need to know what buildings are on the property or what you plan to build in the future, what the buildings’ use will be, and approximately where they will be located. Then our team will evaluate the soil by digging test pits and looking at the different layers of soil. We then take those results and design the proper system, laying it out on the property creating a digital design. We submit this to the health department to be permitted. Once the permit is issued, our team can install the septic and maintain it for the life of the system.

Septic System Design FAQ
What about a Perc Test / Soil Test?
In Arkansas, you must get a permit to construct a septic system. To help you qualify for a permit, we will test the soil and create a design that will handle the water usage for the structures on the property in harmony with the capabilities of the usable land.
What is your protocol for new property purchase?
If you are purchasing property that does not have access to city sewer, you should ensure that septic is a viable option. Decide what you want to build on that property, what its use will be, and approximately where it will be located. Our team will evaluate the soil by digging test pits and providing results with recommendations. Once you purchase the property, we can design the proper system. We will then submit a digital design to the health department to be permitted. Once the permit is issued, our team can install the system and maintain it for the life of the system.
What is the process for repairing, replacing, or adding to an existing System?
Anytime you have to make changes, improvements, or additions to the absorption area (a.k.a. lateral lines), you must first have an approved design for that work and a permit from the health department. The process includes locating the space needed for the absorption area, digging test pits and evaluating the soil to make sure it’s viable, laying out the proposed system, creating a digital design, and submitting it to the county for approval and permitting. Once the permit is issued, our team can make the necessary installations, repairs, or improvements.
