Due to Clearlake's close proximity to the lake, there are a few factors you will need to consider when installing a septic system:
The proximity of the septic system to the lake. The septic tank and drain field must be located at least 100 feet from the lakeshore. This is to prevent the wastewater from the septic system from contaminating the lake.
The type of soil. The soil in Clearlake is mostly clay, which is not as permeable as sandy soil. This means that septic systems in Clearlake need to be larger and have more drain field area than septic systems in areas with sandy soil.
The climate. The climate in Clearlake is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. This can put stress on septic systems, as the water in the septic tank can evaporate more quickly in hot weather, and the dry soil can make it difficult for the wastewater to drain properly.
The size of the home. The size of the home will determine the size of the septic tank and drain field. A larger home will require a larger septic system.
The number of occupants. The number of occupants will also affect the size of the septic system. A home with more occupants will require a larger septic system.
It is important to consult with a licensed septic installer to determine the specific requirements for your home and to ensure that the septic system is properly installed and maintained.
