Erosion Control in Sacramento, California

For Residential and Commercial Construction

Stormwater Design (with LID) Sacramento, California

For Residential and Commercial Construction

Stormwater Design involves channeling the surface stormwater to different drainage systems. We deliver efficient stormwater management plans for residential and commercial projects. Low-impact development (LID) is an approach to land development (or re-development) that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible. LID employs principles such as preserving and recreating natural landscape features, minimizing effective imperviousness to create functional and appealing site drainage that treats stormwater as a resource rather than a waste product. It minimizes the stormwater draining to the municipal waterways. Licensed Civil Engineers will we designing the Stormwater Design with LID. The City of Sacramento Department of Utilities and California State University, Sacramento works together to implement low impact development measures (LID) on the Sacramento State campus. This project reduces stormwater volumes and decreases pollutants discharged into the American River. Since its implementation, the Sacramento State LID project has won two awards. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the California Stormwater Quality Association’s (CASQA’s) Award Program have chosen to specially recognize the efforts of the City of Sacramento, Department of Utilities, and Sacramento State in implementing this project to improve the water quality on campus.

Septic Tank Design Sacramento, California

For Residential and Commercial Construction

In Sacramento, California all the wastewater which flows into the drain of a house gets collected in septic tanks. They are the underground, onsite, small-scale sewage treatment setups that collect sewage. A septic tank contains two main two major components: a septic tank and the absorption field. The wastewater flows into the septic tank which gets treated by the bacterial action and then the effluent wastewater after primary treatment gets sent to the absorption field. A civil engineer can examine the lay of the land and perform various soil tests to establish the best area to construct the septic system. The septic tank design must meet the relevant zone and code requirements. The process for obtaining a permit to install a new septic system in Sacramento County depends on where in the county you plan to install the system. These areas are referred to as Standard or Test Drill areas.

The standard installation area for residential septic systems consists of one dry well (seepage pit) per bedroom, 35-40 feet deep, and a minimum 1,200-gallon septic tank. In the standard area soils, testing is not required. If your parcel is located in a subdivision, check with Liquid Waste Program staff for design. Visit for further information.

For example, for any residential or commercial property owner will need to determine the properties of the soil, the elevation, and slope of the ground, and what the height of the wall needs to be. These factors will determine what type of wall will be needed, and how it should be designed.

Our Licensed and Qualified retaining walls Civil Engineers will help in designing and engineering of high quality retaining walls for your property. We also determine whether your retaining wall needs the building permit or not. If a Building permit is necessary for the retaining wall we will help you during the process of getting a building permit.
