Thanks for that, and you’re right, it was a little confusing about the setback – I meant the building, not the septic field.
I’m sure a lot of places around there would perk, but that there might be a problem with size of the field and placement of it, so…what’s the story with a composting toilet? Does the health authority not accept them as a suitable system, or does it depend on what sort, or what? I don’t know a ton about them, but it seems to me that in this day and age of tech we could figure out a good one that’s low impact. Guess I have to hit google!
