Nitrate Loading Study

San Joaquin County now requires a Nitrate Loading Study for construction of a new home on any parcel two acres in size or smaller, and for the placement of a second home on any parcel. The purpose of this study is to determine whether septic systems could introduce excessive levels of nitrate into the ground water.

We have been preparing Nitrate Loading Studies since the 1990s, and we have completed many studies for new homes since this requirement took effect. We offer rapid turnaround to minimize any delay of the building permit. Please call (209) 365-3222 for more information.
