    They still work because they are hooked up to a tile to the creek... I've found the outlets. barf.

    Agree those need gone .
    The ones I referred to do have lateral fields . Done way before permits or inspections. And work well.
    Probably scare a person to know how many in some areas do drain to daylight .

    Belle, having spent 25+ years doing small stream surveys, I ran into way too many of those, too. NASTY!!!
    I had an acquaintance, a science teacher, who KNEW his septic system was draining into a small creek. He was furious that his "nosy" downstream neighbors had complained and he had to rectify the mess.

    Here every time a home is sold now the septic has to be inspected and brought up to present code . I don't believe all counties do that. If not they should.
    Curious did the the ones draining to creek have a tank or just a tile straight to it.
    Good news is I can do laterals and don't have to do mechanical or sand filter. I do have to pump it to the lateral field. Still thousands and thousands cheaper.
    And te best news is I ain't caught the covid and my mowing is done till next weekend.
    Bring on the weekend !!!

    nobands, quite a few, especially in the 80's, were straight lined. We saw fewer of those as the years passed and inspections became more stringent.

    Fishing has been a little tough for this time of year. Doing OK but not fantastic. The other 2 W’s are fine and the Bar S’s are always good.
