Can I drive over the AES Enviro-Septic® treatment field?

Only if it was designed for H20 loading. Driving over an AES or Enviro-Septic® treatment field (or any leach field for that matter) can cause damage if the system was not designed for traffic bearing (H20 loading).

If your AES or Enviro-Septic® System was not designed and/or installed to allow for vehicular traffic, try to keep all traffic over the treatment field to a minimum. Use particular caution with the following as they may compact soils and inhibit oxygen to the system:

  • Farm equipment/grazing animals
  • Construction equipment (mowing equipment is fine)
  • Repeated use of snowmobiles, ATV‚s, motorcycles, etc.
