If you find water in your backyard from your septic system, you may need to upgrade or switch from a conventional septic system to something better suited to your area. Alternative septic systems are used for problem or difficult sites. There are many alternative septic systems that can accommodate sewer line plumbing, treat waste-water, and dispose of it properly. Alternative septic systems include raised bed and septic mound systems, aerobic systems, disinfection, dosing systems, dry-wells and even waterless systems.
If you experience flooding or unusual water gathering in a backyard or field, you may need to consider switching from a conventional system to an alternative system. If you find your conventional septic system is not adequate, it is important to act quickly to avoid being cited or fined for non-compliance.
