What is a soil's percolation rate?


A soil's percolation rate (measured in minutes per inch) indicates how quickly water can travel through the soil.
Next Question
This measurement is used to determine if a give site is suitable for a septic system. If the soil's percolation rate is too fast, the wastewater cannot be treated properly, leading to possible groundwater contamination. If the soil's percolation is too slow, it is often not possible to build an effective drain field for the septic system. You can proceed with the installation of your septic system if your soil has a suitable percolation rate.
