Septic System

One-fourth of the households in the United States use a septic system for wastewater disposal. Environmental Management Systems has provided clients with professional wastewater treatment system designs since 1998 and has provided designs for projects that range from small single-family residences, to mobile home parks, churches, youth camps, restaurants, schools and sub-divisions. Our professionals can help you meet the challenges of a difficult site, maintain compliance with environmental regulations and enhance the value of your land.

Stormwater Management / Drainage Issues

Stormwater is rain or snow melt that runs off the land and into streams, rivers, and lakes. Stormwater that runs through sites of industrial activity may pick up pollutants and transport them into waterways. As part of the Clean Water Act, the USEPA has directed state and local jurisdictions to require operators of industrial sites to file Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP). As a homeowner or builder in the City of Portland, you are required to use vegetated surface facilities to treat and infiltrate stormwater on the property where the stormwater runoff is created. Environmental Management Systems’ staff of professionals can help you navigate the complex world of stormwater management.

Erosion & Sediment Control Plans (ESCP)

Before construction can take place on your property, all jurisdictions require you to apply for an Erosion & Sediment Control permit accompanied by a plan showing how you will mitigate erosion and control sediment runoff during excavation. Our experienced professionals can develop an Erosion & Sediment Control Plan (ESCP) to accompany your permit application, a plan that meets all regulatory & environmental requirements.

Septic System Inspection / Evaluation

Often, Banks, SBA and other Lending Institutions require Inspections upon Property Transfer to demonstrate due diligence. Our Wastewater Professionals are standing by to help locate and evaluate your existing septic system. We can provide inspections of the tank(s), treatment system and drain field and then provide you with a system evaluation and “As-built” drawings.

Septic System Operation, Monitoring & Maintenance

Whether you have a standard system, sand filter, gravel filter or advanced treatment technology, our Certified DEQ Maintenance Providers can keep your septic system running in top form while meeting your permit requirements.

Does your septic permit require an Operations & Maintenance Manual? Our staff of professionals can inspect & evaluate your system and prepare an Operation & Maintenance Manual acceptable by the Department of Environmental Quality.

Septic System Troubleshooting & Repair

Septic Systems will last longer when they are regularly maintained. If your septic system has been out of sight and mind, it may not be working as designed. Perhaps water is surfacing in your drain field or alarms have been sounding that indicate a problem with your treatment system or tanks. Environmental Management Systems’ staff of trained professionals can quickly locate problems and offer solutions.

Stormwater Permit Monitoring Inspections

Do you have a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System 1200Z or 1200C? Our Certified Erosion & Sediment Control Lead (CESCL) inspectors can provide ongoing inspections required by these permits.
