Document Description
Prepare a one acre area for a standard leach field installation. This will entail removal of 70 Red Alder (Alnus rubra) trees by clearing a 200 feet by 200 feet area, removing the top vegetation to create a flat surface, and store access spoils on-site on flat surface. Install 500 gallon septic tank, distribution box and leachfield trenches. The leachfield will have two branches, each 100 feet long, with 9 trenches four feet deep by 2 feet wide with leach rock placed inside filler fabric. A buffer of trees will remain to the west (ocean side) within Coastal Zone. In addition, work will include a 1,500 foot long by two foot deep and 6 inch wide trench for 2 inch sewer pipe to be machine trenched along the side of an existing road which ties into the existing leachfield.
