What is a perc (percolation) test?

A perc (percolation) test is performed on lots that do not have access to public sewer.  This test determines the suitability for a septic system.  The type of septic system is determined by the condition of the soil and it’s ability to absorb water.

Who does a perc (percolation) test?

A perc test can be performed by the environmental health department located in your county OR by a certified soil scientist.  Bethel Builders will be happy to assist you in having a perc test performed on your lot.
