Why do I need to carry out a Percolation Test?

Percolation tests are carried to determine the size required for the percolation area. The soakage of the soil in every site varies. Some sites have good soakage and some are very poor. Therefore a single solution can’t be offered to everyone. It is crucial to carry out a percolation test in order to know how good your soil soaks and to determine the maximum height of the water table (in order to maintain relevant separations as per the EPA Code of Practice 2009).

A percolation test is required by law in order to apply for planning permission. Sepcon have a dedicated team  that will assist in providing the relevant site assessment information and documents in order to lodge your planning application. Contact us today to discuss your individual requirements.
