SOILS EVALUATIONS

SOILS SERVICES

If you are interested in selling or buying property that does not have access to public sewer facilities, then it is important to know if your property is able to have an onsite wastewater disposal system (drainfield). Greenway’s experienced soil scientists can perform a soils study to determine if a drainfield (conventional or alternative) site can be approved. A soil study is a valuable tool to determine the suitability and ultimately the value of a property.

Our AOSE specialists can provide you with a preliminary walk over review, feasibility study, and a full soil and site evaluation study. We not only evaluate properties for residential use, but also for community, commercial and industrial development, including “mass drainfields”. Our soils evaluations have resulted in subdivision review, certification letter, and permit approvals for hundreds of clients in nine counties. We have worked for national builders, local builders, developers, and single lot property owners.

Ksat TESTING

We also perform water percolation tests and saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ksat) tests when required by the regulations or in situations when the soil conditions are potentially poor for water infiltration.

INSPECTIONS

Our inspection staff can assist you in existing system walkovers for real estate transfers, trouble shootings and recommendations in repair situations and the required Alternative Onsite Sewage System (AOSS) annual inspection. See our AOSS and Inspection and Monitoring page for more details.
