Prior to issuing a building permit, Pocopson Township requires detailed storm water management plans for the new house. The entire area of disturbance must be surveyed and indicated on the site plans. A series of eight test pits were dug at various points on the site and tested for soil percolation values. Double Ring Infiltrometers were used to measure the rate of soil absorption at prescribed depths. A 12 foot deep hole was dug for several of the perc test measurements.
