When you need septic to sewer conversion, choose a company with a record of producing quality workmanship and reputation for excellence. At Street Works Engineering, we assist with hooking up septic systems to modern sewer services offered by municipalities throughout LA, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties.
Why Hook-Up to City Sewer Services?
Even if your current septic system appears to work well for your wastewater and sewage disposal needs, there are better options. You see, when a septic tank stops working, this leaves behind a huge mess for property owners to clean up. Not only is it messy, but it’s expensive too.
But my septic tank is working fine? Why do I need to worry about this?
Although your property’s septic system works well now that might not always be the case. Did you know that even with proper maintenance and no major problems that septic pipes and tanks eventually require replacement? Replacing any component of a septic system gets costly. Why assume this risk?
Another reason to consider switching is that you might be required to connect to the main sewer line. Some cities state that if a city sewer line exists within 300 feet of your property owners must switch. Local codes that don’t require immediate connection might have a clause that requires the switch if the septic system breaks. Instead of allowing property owners to replace the tank, connecting to the main sewer line is the only option.
Cost of Septic to Sewer Conversion
The cost of this service depends on a variety of variables, which is why it’s hard to give an approximation. That being said, the following scenarios factor into the overall cost:
- Septic tank abandonment fees
- Sewer connection fees
- Easement requirements
- Soil properties and terrain
- Distance to the city’s sewer main line
The proximity to the municipal line plays a huge role in cost and the practicality of conversion. Properties located close to the sewer easement won’t have much difficulty connecting and see a lower cost. While LA, Orange, and San Bernardino counties have many public sewer lines, not all properties are close to these lines. In instances like this, additional work and expense are necessary to connect into the public sewer line. Property owners often need to pay extra to extend the sewer pipe.
At Street Works Engineering, we send specialists to our customers’ properties to inspect the situation first-hand before making recommendations.
Septic Tank Abandonment
Our septic to sewer conversion specialists help customers with all aspects of the job including septic tank abandonment. After the conversion, extra steps are needed to make sure the existing tank isn’t a threat to people or the environment. When septic tanks aren’t properly filled in and given a final pump, raw sewage seeps into the ground and even deadly sinkholes are possible.
Each municipality has their own policies for septic tank abandonment. When you hire Street Works Engineering to make the switch, we guarantee compliances with all local codes and permits.
