Site inspection and evaluation are key to the successful design of a commercial onsite wastewater system.
Our engineers provide site feasibility studies and a site and soil evaluation to determine which wastewater system best suits the site. We take into consideration the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) regulations, which consist of topography, soil depth, subsoil structure and texture, groundwater, flood hazards and additional site characteristics. We also take into account the Texas Health and Safety Code (THS Code) regulations concerning onsite wastewater systems, resulting in the most environmentally sound and publicly safe onsite wastewater unit.
Before the design process even begins, WWD Engineering executes a thorough feasibility study to determine the workability of an on-site wastewater treatment plant.
A feasibility study entails an exhaustive analysis of every factor applicable to the site’s retention of an onsite wastewater system. This study is an absolutely necessary first step. Without this study, the practicality of an onsite plant remains an unknown, and it retains potential to fail due to geographic or regulatory reasons.
The feasibility study includes two aspects: inspection and evaluation. The inspection dissects all physical facts concerning the site (land) likely to be the location for the onsite wastewater system. The focus is on topography, soil depth, subsoil structure and texture, groundwater, and flood hazards. As part of this inspection, we also conduct site and soil evaluations. Paralleling the physical inspection, our design team also conducts a thorough analysis of any county, TCEQ and THS Code regulations.
The end result is a thorough, accurate analysis that takes into account the physical characteristics of the site and the regulatory environment in that area to determine the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system.
WWD Engineering provides site and soil evaluations as dictated by the State of Texas and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Before the design process approaches the drawing table, site and soil evaluations are necessary. WWD Engineering is licensed by the TCEQ to conduct these thorough and accurate evaluations.
To evaluate the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system, our team considers the location of the site and its soil properties. A good understanding of these properties is very important to the success of an onsite wastewater system.
Experience is key to know what to search for during a site and soil evaluation. We consider soil properties, components, textures and particle sizes; we know how these affect the general soil structure and the site’s ability to support an onsite wastewater system. We also analyze the site as a whole, taking into account topography, landscape and hydrologic cycles. This provides for a clear image of how water moves through the site.
From this analysis, we can confidently determine any potential problems with the location.
Site and soil evaluations are a necessary component to site feasibility studies.
Considering the results from our site and soil evaluations in conjunction with TCEQ and THS Code regulations, WWD Engineering can accurately determine the feasibility of an onsite wastewater system.
