LaFever Excavating, Inc. has completed a 2 ½ year project in the hamlet of Trout Creek, New York. LaFever Excavating, Inc. installed a septic tank and a lateral line in each home and business. Instead of a leach field, the tanks were connected to pipes which send “gray water” to three common “absorption beds” that LaFever Excavating, Inc. installed.
The Town of Tompkins has awarded the job of building a small diameter sewer system in the hamlet of Trout Creek to LaFever Excavating, Inc.
