Septic System Versus the Water Table

Back in September this property was perced and no water table was found.  Now we go to install the system, and much to our surprise the water was down 36″.  The engineer and board of health were notified and we can up with a plan to ensure the system would function correctly even during times when the water table is at its highest.  The result was to add a pump chamber, bring in a couple hundred yards of sand and install the leaching field 3.5′ higher than originally planned.
