Commercial and institutional facilities produce sewage that is, very different than that produced for residential clients. Commercial & institutional septic inspections are much more complex, take considerably longer to complete, and why very few Private Inspectors are licensed for or willing to do them. Of the few in BC, Coast Mountain Earth Sciences has Inspectors with the Commercial qualification.
The performance of the septic system will be impacted by the contents of the sewage, such as higher sugar content from a bakery, or pharmaceuticals from a nursing home. The volume of sewage, periods of very heavy use, impact from sanitizing compounds, oil & grease, high temperatures and many other factors affect the performance of a septic system. Large-scale laundry will also contribute to this.
We have conducted commercial & institutional septic inspections at diverse sites from daycares to nursing homes, schools, RV parks, resorts, Girl Guide and Scouts camps, municipal parks, addiction recovery centres, correctional facilities, work camps, golf-course communities, and other large/complex sites throughout B.C. These projects often see us working with and for engineering firms, Municipalities and Utilities such as BC Hydro and Kinder Morgan, to provide them with the information they need to support these large projects and initiatives.
