2023: 30 Years of Service!

We can hardly believe 30 years have gone by just like that! Thank you to all of our clients and regular customers who have supported us all these years. Thanks to you, almost all of our business comes to us from your referrals.  You are very much appreciated. We are not done yet... we look forward to continuing to support all of your interesting projects in the years ahead!

Announcement 2013: Expansion of Services:

The implementation of "Green Initiatives" and "Best Management Practices" has sparked the demand for our soil testing and design services in urban areas, including the City of Chicago. In the past, such services were primarily required only in suburban and rural areas. We would like to thank all of our clients who have helped to make this expansion possible! 

New for 2012: We are happy to announce that we now provide NSF 350 design services as well as the required Infiltration testing associated with this type of design. Wastewater disposal systems designated by the NSF standard "350R" have been recently approved by the State of Illinois as an alternative for properties which are limited in size or limited by soil conditions. This is also a good option for those clients who may wish to have more space on their property for other features such as pools, sport courts, etc. Give us a call to see if a NSF 350 wastewater disposal system would be a fit for your next project!

AMC Septic Design & Testing Services operates on the basis of providing the intimate customer care of a private-practice firm with the expertise and resources of a large corporate firm. You may chose from a complete range of services to obtain your septic system installation or building permit for residential and commercial construction. We can also assist you with the necessary services for building additions, or for the repair or replacement of aging septic systems. Our services include Septic System Design, Percolation Testing ("perc test"), Site Plans, Infiltration Testing, and Permit Application Assistance. All of these services are provided in seamless coordination in order to ensure your project will proceed as efficiently and as quickly as possible.

Over the years we have been able to assist our clients in obtaining septic system approvals and building permits for a number of challenging projects while working to protect the public health and preserving our local environmental resources. Our wide-ranging service area encompasses Cook, Lake, Kane, McHenry, DuPage, Will, DeKalb, LaSalle, Ogle, Winnebago and Kendall Counties in Illinois as well as southeast Wisconsin, northern Indiana, and Berrien County Michigan.

AMC Septic Design & Testing Services keeps abreast of the latest technologies for on-site waste water treatment in order to have the widest possible range of engineering options available for differing or challenging projects. This becomes especially important for small or challenged lots where having choices of various products and design alternatives becomes critical.

Additionally, the demand for Infiltration Testing to determine water percolation rates is on the rise throughout the city of Chicago and surrounding municipalities. This testing, using the double-ring infiltrometer method, provides engineers with the critical data necessary for the sizing of detention ponds as well as for the implementation of "Best Management Practices" now required by many municipalities.

Should you need supplemental engineering services, we are happy to work with the Professional Engineer or Land Surveyor of your choice. Alternately, for your convenience, our associated engineers and surveyors can provide you with the Land Surveying or Civil Engineering services you may need.

Give us a call today to learn more about how we can assist with the success of your project! Consultations are always free.
