septic drain fields and run off/drainage #153282
Asked September 18, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT
Hi. I am needing to solve run off issues from a home. If I extend drainage, they will be within 10 feet of septic drainfields. Building a dry well is a solution or planting a rain garden could be a possibility too. Do you have ideas or resources to help find the best long-term solution?
