Fire Rebuild Services and Assistance
Just as significant progress has been made to restore the destruction caused by the October 2017 Tubbs firestorm and Kincaid fire of 2019, we are again faced with fire crisis in our community. Many of our friends and neighbors will face tough decisions and a long road to rebuilding their homes and properties which have been damaged or destroyed. As a local small business, we also feel significant impact from multiple disasters endured over the past three years. We maintain our commitment to the rebuilding efforts and desire to be a part of the success story of this community for the long-term.
To the clients and design professional partners of BC Engineering Group:
Our office is monitoring the developments within our community and the potential for a requirement to close our office. BC Engineering Group will follow government requirements and recommendations as they arise. Please understand that many of our staff have the ability to work remotely from their location of shelter-in-place, particularly all of our management personnel. This will allow BC Engineering Group to continue serving our clients and progressing projects during any office closure, however, in a reduced capacity due to support staff being unavailable and/or limited.
Our management personnel also have access to emails from their remote locations. Our clients are encouraged to reach out to our managers regarding their projects during any office closure that may occur. Furthermore, if you wish to have work stop on your projects, please be sure to notify us via email.
Thank you for your support and stay safe.

County of Sonoma PRMD required soil testing for septic development for an onsite septic disposal system.
A Pre-Perc Site Evaluation is the formal documentation of the onsite soil conditions located on a subject parcel. This is commonly mistaken for a percolation test, or perc test. Although both are testing procedures for gathering data related to soil for use in a septic design, one is used to determine septic system type, while the other is used to determine the overall size of the proposed septic system.

Stormwater treatment and retention requirements causing re-design.
When creating over 10,000 square feet of impervious surface, your project will need to follow the low impact development guidelines for stormwater treatment and capture. The Guidelines for stormwater treatment and capture is outlined in the “Storm Water Low Impact Development Technical Design Manual.” The technical manual was implemented in 2017 and has revisions that can drastically change stormwater management designs.
