Don’t Settle For Less

Septic System Design

Applied Wastewater Solutions, Inc., dba the SJB Consulting Group, is a professional environmental consulting firm serving Northern and Central California. With offices in Amador, Calaveras and Alameda Counties, we can quickly evaluate project sites and develop reasonable septic design solutions that are cost effective, innovative and sustainable.


Charge Forward

Environmental Consulting

Clients often come to us frustrated, caught between the practicalities of developing a parcel or building a new home and the tidal wave of regulations and laws that governs these activities. The SJB Consulting Team is more than simply a group of design professionals, we act as our client’s consultant, your advocate, guiding you through the development process and, where needed, fighting for your right to develop as you see fit. In the tug-of-war between government control and personal property rights, we have a knack for bridging the gap and providing competent solutions that are satisfactory to both sides.

be stewards of the land

Wastewater Compliance

We believe that the long term sustainability of California, both as a powerful economy and an enviable lifestyle, is linked to the prudent stewardship of our natural resources, particularly water. The dream that municipal sewer and water services will one day serve everyone is an idea from the past. Individual on-site and small community systems are likely to provide the flexible, environmentally responsible and cost effective option we need to keep growth alive in the state. Ideas like wastewater re-use and groundwater recharge have new meaning as we see our population expand and our need for water increase. On-site septic systems enable us to provide high quality wastewater treatment in an affordable manner and re-introduce that water right back into the local environment. We are committed to embracing innovative on-site technologies and developing new strategies to mitigate challenging sites and impaired aquifers.



build your dream

Land Development

The development of land, be it a single residence or a subdivision, can be a daunting task for any property owner. We recognize that our clients often need more assistance than simply a design for their septic system or a grading plan for their subdivision road. For that reason, we have assembled a team of professionals with a wide range of experience to help guide our clients through the land development process. With over 40 years of combined experience in the development of land in California, we are adept in the fields of real estate, water, wastewater and construction. We know the pertinent government rules and regulations. We offer cost effective, timely consulting to help guide you through the maze of requirements and design options.
