Re: Re: Planning – Septic tanks!
There are plenty of companies that carry out percolation / tests reports etc, usually these are the suppliers of the waste systems. They normally offset the charge for the report against the system. Ireland Waste Water pops to mind.
You need to bear in mind the location of adjoining boreholes / percolation areas. Check out the GSI website, they have lots of info ( get a copy of Groundwater Protection Schemes, this explains protection matrixs) combine this with the online maps of Vulnerability ratings / Bedrocks etc and you can out together a good desk study which will help you plan the site.
