We provide installation of septic systems in Iola, WI. Homes and businesses in Iola without village sewer access must provide their own on-site waste water treatment, also known as a septic system. These systems are similar to waste water treatment facilities used by cities across Wisconsin. They are designed to remove chemicals, nutrients and pathogens before the waste water enters our groundwater, lakes and streams. Do you need a new or replacement septic system?

Before purchasing land to build on, it may be wise to have the soil tested. Some sites are not suitable for conventional septic systems. A Certified Soil Tester (CST) can determine the type of system your site will allow. Backhoe pits must be dug by the CST to determine the physical characteristics of your soil.
