Key Things To Know About Septic System Excavation & Removal

When we're talking wastewater, you need every aspect of your system to function perfectly. That starts with an accurate excavation


  • Septic Is Complicated

    Treating wastewater is not a simple process, modern septic systems are intricately-designed marvels of sanitary engineering. Countless pieces of infrastructure, from the tank to the drainage field, must be excavated perfectly in order to achieve a safe installation.

  • Soil Is Challenging

    It's tempting to think of dirt as, well, dirt. But it's in fact complex and challenging to work with. In Central New York we see everything from loose sand to hard packed clay. Each soil type requires a different approach to protect your system from any future problems.


  • Size Matters

    One of the most important factors that impacts the difficult and cost of removing your existing septic system is the size. Large tanks, extensive drainage fields, and other infrastructure, can demand more effort to remove and dispose of, increasing the complexity of the job.

  • Septic Is Dangerous

    You don't need to be told that wastewater contains dangerous bacteria. Even after your system has been pumped out, safe removal requires a careful touch to ensure no "products" end up on your yard. Disposal must also been done in accordance to local codes.

Do you install or repair septic systems? 

We're happy to provide efficient excavation for your septic system, but we do not install or repair septic systems. However we have relationships with excellent septic companies in Central New York that do quality work, and would be happy to refer you!

What kind of septic systems do you provide excavation for?

Any kind! Chamber, drip, aerobic, mound, and beyond, we have the experience and equipment to deliver a phenomenal result to you. Each type of septic system needs a different strategy for excavation, so working with an expert contractor is key for success.

Why is proper excavation for septic systems so important?

The soils here in Central New York are extremely challenging, with many areas seeing a high water table. If your septic system is not properly excavated, it can lead to issues like your septic tank shifting or improper drainage in your field. These can be costly fixes later on.

Do I need to do any preparation before you visit?

Depending on the conditions on your site, you may need to move certain obstructions so we can safely navigate. We'll perform a site visit prior to beginning work which identifies any preparation you may need to do. In most cases, it's very minor and easy!

What happens if you find underground lines or pipes?

Before we do any excavation work our team checks for the locations of underground utilities. However, there are times where a utility may not be marked on drawings. If we discover any unmarked infrastructure, we'll immediately stop to resolve the situation before continuing.
