Septic System Design

Whether it’s for new construction or an upgrade, Nerstrand Excavating is your answer for timely code-compliant septic system design. Starting out in the area of septic system services we have a long-standing history for performing quality and reliable services. Working closely with area cities, counties and townships we maintain a thorough understanding of ever-changing septic system specifications and regulations.


As a septic system designer and installer we are able to utilize our experience from both of these areas when it comes to designing a system that will benefit you and other professionals throughout the life of your septic system. Our septic system design services include:

  • Site Evaluation – determining the optimal location for a septic system
  • Tank Size & Location
  • Drain Field Type
  • Design Flow – working with the natural lay of your property if possible
  • State, City & County Code Compliance

Septic System Installation

Whether an elaborate commercial system or a thoughtfully placed residential one, your septic system acts as an “onsite sewage treatment facility” completely treating sewage on your property. As such, you should make sure your system is installed properly by a professional septic system contractor.


Fortunately, Nerstrand Excavating is a septic system installer with over 15 years of experience. From new construction installs to tearing out old systems and replacing them with upgraded ones, we are familiar with all aspects of septic system installation. Contact us to learn more about our septic installation services.


In September of 2010, my siblings and I contracted Nerstrand Excavating for an evaluation regarding installation of an updated septic system on our family estate. We were pleased with their willingness to work according to our wishes to construct on the primary lot even though the property is a double lot. We were very impressed with the service provided and promptness of installation. They installed according to our time frame and completed the job with very little landscaping to be finished. They provided us with suggestions for future landscaping. Nerstrand Excavating was prompt, courteous and listened to our needs and wishes in their design of our in-ground system, yet worked within accepted/mandated policies.


We will and have recommended their services to other potential clients.

- Sincerely, S. & K. Hanson
