Standing at the future house septic tank looking back towards the barn septic tank. The trench on the right is where the main power line comes up to the barn from the transformer. We’ve also buried phone cable for DSL in that trench.
Standing at the barn looking at the barn septic tank. The green riser further down is the septic tank for the future house. The line goes straight down from there about 200 ft to the pump tank.

Post for mounting septic control panel. Apparently it has to be within 50′ of the pump tank and our barn is 240′ away. We weren’t planning on a post in this field so will have to get creative with tree and shrub planting.
Inspection Day. Thank Goodness we PASSED! As a matter of fact, the inspector and the septic designer were both quite impressed with the job. The best news is that we can now backfill all of the trenches – hopefully with this warm fall we are experiencing, the pasture grasses will grow back in pretty quick.
