Septic installation

Our services includes, among others, site and natural terrain characterization studies for isolated residences and other buildings (Q-2, r.22), inspection of existing septic systems, preliminary study for future septic systems, flow equivalency letters, annual maintenance of septic systems and more.

Site and Natural Terrain Characterization Study for Isolated Residences and Other Buildings (Q-2, r.22)

Our team can conduct a site survey that will allow us to design the septic system best adapted to local constraints. The final product consists of a soil analysis, a detailed report and plans and specifications for your future septic system. These documents are mandatory to obtain a permit for the construction of a new isolated residence or to modify an existing septic system.

Inspection of existing septic systems

Is your septic system getting older? Are you buying a property that has a septic system? We can conduct a detailed inspection of the septic system in order to validate its compliance, through a classification that assesses the system’s performance while complying with the regulations (Q-2, r. 22).

Preliminary study for future septic systems

Do you want to determine whether a piece of land is constructible in terms of septic systems, without having to pay for a complete soil study? The preliminary study proposes a preliminary recommendation on the type(s) of wastewater treatment system(s) to be installed on a site and gives an order of magnitude of the price of the system. This study is valuable in real estate transactions.

Debit Equivalency Letter

The project you care about requires a change in use of a building? Aqua Ingenium assists you by performing the flow calculations and writing an equivalency letter for isolated residences and other buildings. This letter is often required for short-term rental projects to determine the maximum capacity of eligible individuals.
