Site Feasibility Assessments

A site feasibility assessment is conducted to determine a property’s ability to support an on-site sewage disposal system from a regulatory perspective. Marginal soil conditions or unfavourable water table elevation may preclude a property from obtaining a permit for an onsite wastewater treatment system and hence the lot may not be suitable for building until such time as sewer is available. ACE staff specializes in performing site reconnaissance to evaluate the subsurface conditions and judge whether or not the parcel will gain approval from the local health authority based on the current regulations. Additionally, we can offer insight into probable construction costs for installing an appropriate system.

Environmental Impact Study

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required for large scale discharges (Discharges exceeding 5,000 gallons per day) to the environment in order to study the impact the discharge will have on the intended receiving environment. Specifically, it must be demonstrated that the discharge will not adversely impact the receiving area or public health and safety. For discharges to the ground the ground the EIA considers such factors as:

  • Ground water mounding effect
  • Subsurface travel time to potential down slope receptors
  • Impact of the effluent on the receiving environment

Well Pump Tests

Development of parcels of land that are dependent on private wells for water supply requires proof that water is available in sufficient quantity and that it meets current standards for quality. ACE staff are experienced in the performance of well pump tests to determine the capacity of the well and can facilitate the collection of water samples to ensure the water produced meets current regulatory standards.

Water Treatment

Water Treatment ACE staff is experienced in the planning and development of rural water systems from source selection, to design of infrastructure and selection of treatment works through to project management and construction review services. A Waterworks Construction Permit is typically required for construction, extension or alteration of a water supply system that services anything other than a single-family residence. We have successfully aided several clients in obtaining water construction permits for both residential developments as well as commercial and recreational facilities.

Rural Land Development

Subdivision of rural property requires that the parcel or parcels of land to be created have suitable area for location of an onsite wastewater treatment system(s). Additionally, factors such as mandated setback distances, slope, and proximity to breakout point must be considered when locating candidate disposal field areas. ACE staff have participated in numerous subdivisions and can provide the support necessary to see the subdivision through from conception to final construction.
