Re: Septic question.
There has not been a "conventional" leach bed system installed anywhere around my Tioga Co. camp in the past 15 years, that I know of?
Any upgraded systems have all been sand mounds. All new ones, same deal.
One of my cousins did get a pass several years ago, when he wanted to put a trailer down back of his house for his parents. It's a "conventional" system, installed about 40 years ago.
The sewage officer inspected the system, didn't find any problems with it and allowed the extra dwelling. He made them pump the tank and checked it, decided the tank was big enough and the bed was working fine. Thing is, there was another trailer down there years ago, with no problems, when his oldest daughter got married and moved a new trailer in for several years..
