Northwood’s Bar & Grill: Elk River, MN

This restaurant was relocating to a property with many site constrictions. The soils were disturbed and compacted and the only area available for tanks was under the parking lot.


  • Traffic rated septic tanks were installed under the parking lot.
  • A dig out was completed on the mound location to remove the damaged soils.
  • A Nayadic pretreatment system was installed to reduce the high strength waste to below residential levels.
  • Drainfields were constructed in the only available space and had to be built in between the parking lot and the road right of way.
