Dr. B and I live in the same area and this new law has all but stopped my search for any land deals that are not on city sewer. I have one of these new septic systems at my private residence. The present cost on mine is 22k. If that isn’t enough, I’m forced by the county to have a maintenance contract with one of their ‘prefered’ providers @ $300 a year. The system has 3 pumps, as many float swithches and a control panel that could operate an NC machine tool. The whole system is monitored via the internet so I assume my whole family’s bathroom habits are watched and recorded.
I have checked with the county and was told that a Mobile Home on a functioning leach line system would be OK. But…if in the future the system failed or you moved a new home in, you’ll be slapping leather for close to 20K.
As they say in Rome, Caveat Emptor!
