I currently have a septic system that is from 1973, typical holding tank and drain field. It was pumped last year and pumper signed off on the condition as ok with the county (required every 3 years). My problem is that I want to do some work on my home. Of course I could go the permit less way, but not how I want to go about things. My issue is that my county banned standard septic systems and require upgrading them if they are failing or if permits are pulled for remodeling, no matter the scope. Anyway, I sure don't have 15-20k to blow on a septic system that currently works fine. Plus they have to be changed to a mound system, and the only place I'm allowed to put it is in my back yard (currently on the side) and would completely wreck my yard and view. Anyone have experience fighting a county on replacing a functioning system?
