Septic systems are installed when your property is not close enough to connect to a city sewage system.
Prior to installation, a health department official must come out and evaluate your soil to determine what system is needed.
An installation permit is required, and the cost of the system varies depending on soil conditions, size of system, type of system, and any county requirements.
Systems can range in cost from $3,000 to $15,000.
If a system fails a whole new system may be required to be installed.
