Structure and/or Grading Letter

We review your plans to make sure that your construction will not affect your septic system. We have found over the years that many septic systems are compromised to some extent by construction activities around the home such as patios, decks, driveways, detached garages, storage buildings and the like. Even if you are rebuilding a deck or other structure, you may already have an issue with the septic system.

Please submit an application describing the proposed construction as completely as possible. You need to submit a drawing of the proposed construction with dimensions. The drawing (example) must show the location of the construction in relation to the existing home. Please email and or fax (678-807-7343) the application and the drawing to us and we will review it. There is a $20.00 fee for an office review, if we have to make a site visit it will be $100.00. Please note that it may take twenty business days to process the review.
