What information do I need to order a soil test? The client should provide contact information including name, address, and telephone number. An email address is helpful. For a vacant property, provide a plat of survey (or legal description, lot dimensions, and street name if survey is not available). For an existing residence or non-residential building, provide the property address and the survey or survey information. Reasonably accurate property dimensions are essential because the test report must include a map showing sample locations. Indicate the proposed test area on the survey or from a site plan. This site plan need not be an architectural rendering – a hand-drawn diagram that includes enough information to identify the proposed test area will suffice. Indicate locations of planned or existing features such as home site, outbuildings, pools, driveways, etc. A Property Index Number (PIN, available on the real estate assessment or property tax bill) is extremely useful, especially for filing, permitting, and data retrieval. How can I interpret the test results? The test report is written using technical language in a format required by the county or municipal Health Department. The information in the report is easily interpreted by Health Department staff and by licensed septic system designers and installers. William R. Kreznor & Associates, Inc. will gladly discuss the test results with its clients to make sure they understand the potential and limitations of the property. How much does the test cost? Testing requirements regarding number of samples and depth of sampling vary among the counties serviced. Please call or email William R. Kreznor & Associates, Inc. for current price information for your location. DESIGNED BY BLUE SKY CONSULTING
