May 19, 2003     Test Hole (Septic)


Monday morning the Inspector from Central District Health Department arrived to oversee the digging of the test hole and let us know how we would proceed with the septic system based on the results. Mike Fletcher quickly dug a hole almost 9 feet deep and about three feet wide. Inspector McGregor was able to look in the hole and feel the soil to determine that our field drain would need to consist of two 35 foot trenches, 6 feet apart, 6 feet wide, 9 feet deep and then filled up to the four foot mark with five feet of sand. Whew! That was a bit more than we had planned for!





This set of photos show the test hole and the discussion afterwards.
