You must have a Soil Scientist do a soil survey before you apply for a permit from the Health Department.

 

A septic tank system must be located away from wells, streams, lakes and houses. In addition to spacing, minimum dimensions have been established for absorption field trenches and distances between trenches are specified in state regulations.

 

Water use in rural houses can be predicted from the house plan, depending on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, water using appliances, and potential additions.

 

Although the actual number of residents determines water use in a house, the house plan suggest the potential number of residents and wastewater flow, which varies from a minimum of 150 gallons per day to 1000 or more. This flow estimate, plus the soil permeability estimate (i.e., how easily water moves through the soil), is used to determine the absorption field area needed for your house. Installing a sufficient drain field will help your septic tank system function longer.
