Case Study: Seasonal Home in Massachusetts

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

A seasonal home in Ashburnham, MA located across from Stodge Meadow Pond did not pass Title 5.  There was an outhouse on the property, and the only area available to install a septic system was upslope on a hill behind the house.  A B43 GSF bed system, using 21 modules, was installed.  The septic tank was placed in the front yard of the property, and then effluent is being pumped up to the drainfield.  The GSF system was chosen for it's easy installation, the smaller system footprint, and lower site impact.
