I am looking to get a site survey done for a house I'm thinking of buying. House has septic tank and bore water coming from a well which is sunk on the grounds.
I basically need to get a survey done that will let me know if the current set up is safe and within regulations. I tried to get a list of authorised surveyors from the planning office but they dont have one!! I checked few resources Water Treatment Video for more information but did not find much.
Has anyone got any info / lists of companies or individulas who do this kind of work?
Survey specifically for the water / septic tank - engineers rep. already done for house.
Any help will be appreciated.
Site survey for location?
A full scale septic system survey can be costly. Does the owner have any history on the system? pumping records? Repair records? You could then reach out to the pumper for any input they may have. There should also be State, County or City/Township records some where identifying are and size of system. Be cautious with anything that has no records and have been grandfathered.
Water records should be located t some government agency including well drilling records such as date, depth, etc.. Are you asking about quality? Samples can be taken and sent in to be analyzed. Highly recommended in an agricultural area. Location? If location it should be traceable through a metal detector. Systems that old are at least should be steel or galvanized pipe.
The county or health dept should have records of your septic system and well.
