Septic Drain Field

Some homes may not have enough land area or appropriate soil conditions to accommodate the soil absorption drain field. In some communities, the water table is too high to allow the drain field to give adequate treatment to the wastewater before it is returned to the groundwater.

Other site-related concerns include homes located on wooded lots or on lots close to a body of water. Homeowners in wooded areas may not want to clear enough land to install a septic tank and drain field, and the wastewater treated by a septic system is often not of high enough quality to be discharged very close to a body of water.
