Muskoka Septic Design and Installation
Lake of Bays Septic Design and Installation
In Muskoka and Lake of Bays
Septic design and installation are fundamental to almost any building project or renovation. In fact, building plans can’t be submitted for permit approval until a septic plan has been submitted first.
Fivepoint Landscaping and Services has the required licensing and many years of experience designing and installing septic systems in Muskoka and Lake of Bays. We can also consult with homeowners and cottagers to assess whether a planned renovation or addition requires a septic system to be reworked or replaced based on an existing permit.

When installing a septic system for a new build in Muskoka or Lake of Bays, our work begins with an onsite visit, where we use a GPS unit to survey the property and prepare a topographical map. Then, with the building plans in hand, we’ll design the septic system that makes the most sense for your unique Muskoka and Lake of Bays property and situation. The same class of septic system will vary greatly depending on site-specific features such as the space available, soil material, and depth to bedrock, so it’s vital to be guided by experience here.
Of special interest to many residents of Muskoka and Lake of Bays, septic systems near the water are required to be Class 2, that is, to include an additional secondary wastewater treatment stage when compared with other systems. Class 2 systems protect nearby waterways by treating and filtrating the septic wastewater before it enters the bed. Fivepoint has a wealth of experience installing Class 2 systems in Muskoka and Lake of Bays, as well as the more traditional leaching bed systems such as raised and inground beds, whitby filter beds, and greywater pits.
While far from its most glamourous aspect, a properly functioning septic system is truly invaluable, not only to the enjoyment of your home or cottage, but also to your health and that of your family. Contaminants in wastewater can impact your drinking water supply and cause serious health concerns. To ensure a robust and resilient septic system, separation distances, other legislated standards, and regular maintenance must be observed. We’ll help you understand the guidelines and consider the options available to you, depending on your property, your family, and what you envision for your Muskoka or Lake of Bays home or cottage in the years to come.
