This fully wooded parcel provides a beautiful country setting for your dream home outside Roxboro on Virgilina Rd. With a new soil report from an independent soil scientist that shows favorable soils for conventional septic systems, this parcel is ready for you to put down roots. A buyer would need to secure a septic permit from the county. A deeded easement runs partially on the front left corner used by the landowner to the north. See the GIS website screenshot in the pictures depicting the easement. With a little over 100 ft of road frontage and a back property line that is approximately 700 ft off the road, there is plenty of space to find that perfect spot. With Mayo Lake Recreational area only minutes away, there are plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun. Call today for your private showing.
Chandler Soil Corporation finished the general soil and site evaluation for approximately 1.39 acres Virgilina Road, Person County, Parcel Record Number 10731. We found the soils to be suitable for a shallow conventional with a soil cap septic disposal system.
First, let’s begin with a primer on septic systems. Septic system, which have been used since Roman times, are a natural treatment system for the effluent from the house. First, the effluent from the house enters a septic tank, where solids settle out from the liquids and the liquids are then distributed to the drain field. The solids are pumped out of the tank roughly every 7 years.
Each home must have an initial and a repair area. The initial area is installed first, and the repair area is used if the initial area fails.
There is a “grandfather clause”: “The repair area requirement shall not apply to a lot or tract of land: which is specifically described in a document on file with the local health department on July 1, 1982, or which is specifically described in a recorded deed or a recorded plat on January 1, 1983.” This lot appears to be grandfathered, which means it would need only the Initial system area. we would need a minimum of 4700 square feet for a three-bedroom home or 6200 for a four-bedroom home.
The types of disposal systems are based on the depth of the soil. The deeper the soil the cheaper the system. The size of the area of a septic system is based on the soil properties, and the amount of area with those soil properties. These properties affect the Long-Term Acceptance Rate (LTAR) of effluent in the soil. An LTAR of 0.35 gallons/day/ft2 was determined after consideration of the soil morphological characteristics.
Our work on this property consisted of a general evaluation. The general evaluation, surveys soils in the area, then we estimate the line or the extent of soils for the same system types.
The Conventional Area: estimated 31,924 square feet.
o Is shown on the enclosed map in a purple hatch.
o Each drain field area would require that 3-foot swaths be cut through the forest at 9-foot
intervals for installation, or that the area be completely cleared. Do not clear the area until it is permitted and ready for installation, and after you have talked to the installer.

1.39 acres Virgilina Road, Person County
Parcel Record Number 10731
o A conventional system requires a septic tank and a drain field trench filled with gravel. The cost ranges from $3000-$7000 depending on the house placement which determines the elevation fall, and the need for a pump. The cost of pumping is roughly $1000 for the pump and $3/foot for the line to the field.

The soil restrictions on this lot include: • Saprolite (s)
Conventional system depth Subsurface Anaerobic Drip or Pretreat Low Pressure Pipe Subsurface Pretreated Drip Surface Drip
Saprolite is a soil rock interface, which has hydraulic properties more like rock than soil. This usually restricts water flow.
The next steps:
1) Acquire an Improvement Permit (IP) through the county - the first of three permits
needed to build are:
a) Application must be made for an Improvement Permit.
b) If so desired, within 30-60 days after improvement permit is issued, submit a survey of
lot and drain field to acquire a “Permanent Improvement Permit.” This effectively stops time in the current rules. Unless you are building out within 5 years this is a wise investment.
Finally, our evaluation was made in accordance with the "Laws and Rules for Sewage Treatment, and Disposal Systems" 15A NCAC 18A .1900 and 15A NCAC 2T. 0600 regulations for "Waste Not Discharged to Surface Waters". We guarantee that our work was performed to professional standards. This report represents our professional opinion and does not guarantee government approval or denial of a septic system.
