Mound Septic Systems

A mound system consists of a septic tank, dosing chamber, and an elevated absorption mound. The effluent is held in the chamber and periodically pumped into the absorption mound.

Because the soil in the mound receives the effluent evenly and over set intervals, it is much less likely to become overly saturated than a traditional system.

When the soil in the drainage area of a septic system becomes waterlogged, it loses some of its ability to treat the effluent.

A mound system works more effectively and has a longer life span than a conventional system. Because the mound is constructed over the original ground level of the drainage area, it adds additional vertical filtering capacity to the site.
