Normal Steps in Designing Your Septic System

  1. Customer calls to arrange for NET Septic to do the design work.  Customer and designer sign contract.  Usually a backhoe is pre-arranged to meet the designer and customer for the initial site inspection (next step).  
  2. The customer provides preliminary information to designer. 
    1. Owner name
    2. Property address
    3. Tax parcel number
    4. Plot plan or sketch of location of buildings, roads, wells
    5. Size of system desired (in terms of number of bedroom, or number of customers if commercial)
    6. Intended use (residential or commercial)
    7. Expected occupancy
    8. Water availablility (private well or public water system)
  3. Customer meets with designer at the lot to discuss placement of home, well, lot corner location, an options.  Test holes are usually dug at the same time for the soil evaluation.  Doing both at the same time saves you time and money.
  4. ​The septic designer proceeds with the evaluation to place stakes and ribbons as soon as the schedule allows.
  5. The septic designer produces the design drawings and paperwork needed to submit to the regulatory authority.  
  6. The customer provides a check to the designer to cover permit costs.
  7. Designer submits the proper paperwork and design to the regulator.
  8. The regulatory person makes a site visit and evaluates the submitted designs.
  9. When approved the designer and customer are notified that the permit is approved.
  10. ​Customer is now able to contract with a septic system installer and have it installed.
  11. Once installed the installer contacts the designer and the designer makes a site visit to evaluate if the design was installed correctly and take measurement to produce the Record Drawing (often called an As-Built Drawing).
  12. Designer submits the Record Drawing to the regulator.
  13. The regulator approves the Record Drawing and notifies designer and owner that the process is completed.​
