An ideal standard septic system will be located in an area below the house, or building, in soil with a depth of four (4) feet of good soil. The approximate fees for
analyzing the site and designing a residential septic system run approximately
$450 to $1,200 depending on the location. In addition, the permitting fees for a new septic system run
from $230 in Bexar County to $325 in Blanco.
The actual installation cost of the septic system depends on the size and type of the system. A residential on-site sewerage facility (OSSF) is sized according to the number of bedrooms and square footage of living area. Commercial OSSF's are sized according to estimated water usage and wastewater strength. The site and soil conditions will determine the type of OSSF to be installed. The most common types of OSSFs in the area are Aerobic with spray or chip disposal and septic tanks with backing panel disposal. Prices for residential installations range from about $7,000 - $15,000.
