The first step to installing or replacing a new septic system is to obtain an HHE 200 septic design from a state soil scientist. The soil scientist will come out to your property and test the soil and devise a written plan for the construction of the system. Mainely Septics Systems can facilitate this for the property owner and meet with the soil scientist at the property.
The second step consists of the town code officer signing the plan authorizing the start of the system. Each town has a fee amount attached to authorizing the plan.This fee is usually included in the estimate. The code officer will inspect the new system and approve the bed upon completion.
The next step is the pumping of effluent from the existing tank if there is one. This allows for easy hookup into a new bed to the existing tank.
The new bed will be installed and connected to the septic tank. The bed will be covered according to the plan. The completed bed will be covered with loam, seed, and hay.
