septic systems in rural communities
i live in a rural area in a 3bdrm home. the existing septic system is over forty years old and will fail one of these days, so i have already had an engineer design a new one (in a new spot) which has been permitted by the state and town.
i'd like to also replace my old system after the new system is in place so i will have two brand new septic systems for a total of 6 bdrm capacity.
once i have two new septic systems i'd like to build an addition which would have a 3bdrm apt in it--essentially i'd have a duplex of sorts in the long run.
i'm wondering how best to approach the town about this.
the home directly north of me has several apts in two buildings, (possibly not legal) as does the site two doors south, which has three mobile homes sharing a legal ten bdrm capacity septic.
any tips on how to help get this approved?
