Dawn met with the septic folks and walked the property with them, pointing out where we wanted the new septic system. We wanted one system to service all of the houses, but they are telling us a ‘community system’ is much more expensive and requires a lot more paperwork than several individual systems. Whatever. I don’t know the first thing about septic systems, so I won’t argue with them.
Addendum: Someone who wasn’t even involved in the initial meeting had the bright idea of putting in a ‘community system,’ so they changed our design without telling us. Again, whatever.
