This project consisted of us replacing an old metal septic tank at Table Rock Lake with a new poly septic tank that meets the Missouri state and Stone County regulations.

The location of the septic tank inlet has been electronically located and the hole is directly above tank inlet.
A hole appears revealing a rusted out metal septic tank after beginning the initial excavation.
After additional excavation more of the failed metal tank is revealed as well as a damaged outlet pipe connected to the dispersal line.
A closeup shot of the damaged outlet pipe reveals a large root wad headed toward the dispersal line.

A Few Details About This Tank Replacement Project
This project had a variety of site conditions which raised the degree of difficulty.
The site is a lakefront lot built on a bluff that overlooks Table Rock Lake. The only access was from an eroded driveway edge which was addressed before accessing the tank location.
A very steep equipment access ramp was built with spoils from the tank area. Additionally, the tank was located underneath an existing retaining wall, stairway and deck support posts. Temporary support braces were installed to protect the integrity of the existing deck, stairway and house foundation during the tank removal and installation process.
A very narrow equipment access was constructed while protecting the original natural landscape.
