About Our Business

Creative Solutions

At Alternative Onsite Solutions, we understand that change is not always easy, but a necessary part of meaningful growth. Since 2005, we’ve been helping to raise the standard on how residential and commercial wastewater treatment systems are designed, installed, and maintained. We specialize in all three areas. 

We were the first company to have a residential alternative wastewater treatment system design approved for the state of Utah. We are most familiar working with the health departments of Wasatch, Summit, Salt Lake, Utah, and Weber counties. 

Why Choose AOS?

  • Advanced Septic System Experts: We've installed more treatment systems than anyone else in the state of Utah. We have hundreds of systems in the ground that have been treating and cleaning wastewater for the last decade without a single failure. If we install your system, you can rest assured that it will be done right.

  • Specialized in getting even the most difficult properties approved: We have done several projects for sites with limited space, bedrock, shallow water table, close proximity to open water, river bank lots, steep slopes, expanding clays, soft sands, and every other problem in between. Working closely with local health departments we have found solutions for some of the most difficult properties in the state. 

  • Quality: Our systems are installed to a higher standard than any other septic system company you will find in Utah. Each septic system we install is custom built with a pre-manufactured water-tight lid and seamless risers brought to the surface. You can call the septic tank manufacturers to verify - but we are the only company in Utah to do this. Additionally we put access risers over the d-boxes and all valve boxes. This ensures that there is acess to all the critical components to your system without having to dig up the entire yard. 

  • Education: Currently we're the only company in the state of Utah to become accredited with the National Environmental Health Association in advanced wastewater treatment. President Benn Witt has a B.S. Degree in Environmental Health from BYU, is Level 3 Certified in Wasterwater Design, and is a licensed S-390 Treatment System contractor. Lead Technician Phillip Witt has a B.S. degree in chemistry from Utah Valley University. 

  • Expertise in State & County Codes: State and County codes are constantly changing. We participate in rule revisions committees in Summit, Wasatch, Salt Lake, and Utah counties as well as at the state level. We're actively involved in any proposed rule changes on state or local levels. If something isn't possible today, but might be in the future, we'll be the first to know. 

  • Entirely focused on septic systems: By specializing in just septic systems, we see hundreds of systems every year and have a much deeper background of how they work than someone that just does a few here and there. We design them, install them, and maintain them. Working with septic systems all day every day, from Summit County to Utah county, we see the bigger picture of how they work in different areas and seasons. Plus, we see how they work 5-30+ years after they're installed. We've dealt with projects of all sizes from cabins and residential properties, to very large projects such as schools, National Parks, and the Kennecott Mine expansion. When it comes to septic sytstems, we've seen them all. 

  • Decades of experience: Our team has a combined 75+ years of experience in the field of septic systems. 

  • Focus on Maintenance: AOS does more State Certified Maintenance than any other company in Utah. Maintaining and inspecting systems that are 10, 20, and 30 years old we understand how they work better than anyone else. Each system we install is designed so that it can be maintained, not just replaced. 

    • Online montioring with alarms to montior flows and catch any issues that arise in real time. ​

    • Inventory of replacement parts in stock, so repairs can be completed without delay.
