2. Characterization of the terrain
In Quebec, all septic systems are governed by the regulation on the evacuation and treatment of wastewater from isolated residences (Q-2 – r.22) of the law on the quality of the environment. This by-law establishes the rules for the location of a septic installation according to the characterization of the land. In summary, the percentage of slope, the area of infiltration available and the distance with key elements (watercourse, well, house, etc.) exert an influence on the type of septic installation possible to build on your ground. It is therefore the characterization of your land that confirms to us what type of septic installation it is possible to build on your land.
