The perk test came back. There were a few considerations and limitations on where the septic field can be placed on the property, but the very positive news is the system doesn’t required a ton of engineering. This was a point of concern for us as two properties down required an engineered system in the neighborhood of twenty grand. The part that makes our system a bit more expensive is the leach field has to be set back a good deal from the back of the house, which in turn requires a pump. This isn’t a closed case yet, as the builder is going to investigate some other options and see if there might be another option, but either way we are still without the bounds of affordability.
