Here, outside the city limits, there’s no public septic system in place so that everybody lets their waste run somewhere, preferably, of course, on their own property. Meanwhile there’s some regulation, though, and you have to have a septic tank, even if it’s one that collects the “solids” only and has a run-off/overflow for the “water”. Well, we couldn’t and wouldn’t let the stuff just run out into the boonies and thus we now have a septic tank able to hold 500 gallons. That’s quite a capacity as it’s for the “solids” only, whereas the rest, the “water” runs out through a buried pipe with holes and simply drains away.
The septic tank is being delivered:
It really is quite huge. Is that 500 gallons only?
The hole for the tank is being dug :
The drainpipes are being laid:
