Site Soil Evaluations

One of S&EC's licensed soil scientists performs an evaluation of in-situ soils within a stormwater infiltration trench.

The nature and extent of soils on a site greatly affect the utility of the site for many uses, especially the application of wastewater and stormwater.

S&EC was founded by a group of Soil Scientists with considerable years of experience in the areas of soil and site mapping, wastewater design and on-site permitting.  Our professional staff routinely provides professional services in the fields of soil science, wastewater management and system design.

Our staff provides expertise in the areas of:

  • Soils Science (evaluation, classification & mapping)
  • Wastewater Treatment Design
  • On-site Wastewater Permitting
  • Wastewater System Layout
S&EC routinely performs saturated hydraulic conductivity tests to evaluate wastewater and stormwater infiltration potential


Our team of North Carolina registered Licensed Soil Scientists (LSS) provides expertise on a wide range of projects including municipal projects, state projects, and private residential and commercial developments.

S&EC provides detailed soil surveys to determine soil/site suitability for both large and small scale conventional and alternative on-site wastewater treatment systems, stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) soil evaluations, hydraulic conductivity testing, flood hazard soils areas, soil erodability potential, and preliminary soils evaluations for subdivision approval.
