Septic Systems

Whether you need a new septic system or the time has come to replace your existing system, Oly Mattera Construction is the company to call in order to get the job done right.

The steps that need to be taken before starting construction on the new septic system:

■ Soil testing

We will schedule soil testing with the town sanitarian. During soil testing, two test pits are dug approximately 50’ apart in the proposed area for the new leaching field. The town sanitarian or soil scientist will perform a soil analysis to determine if the soil is acceptable.

■ Percolation esting

A percolation test is then conducted to determine how quickly a certain volume of water drains into the soil.

■ Submit Design to Town for Approval

Once the percolation test has passed, we will then complete the septic design and submit to the County or Township for permit issuance. Typically once the design is completed and submitted, it can take five to ten days for the permit to be issued.

Our certified team of installers ensures proper installation of all septic tank systems. We use the right equipment that guarantee a proper set up and installation of your septic tank.
