Successful design of an on-site sewage treatment system depends on an adequate site evaluation. The percolation test is a part of a complete site evaluation. This 7-page folder describes the proper procedure for running a percolation test to determine the soil sizing factor for use in the design of an on-site treatment system. For local sanitarians, site evaluators and state agency personnel.
