Today the contractors finished the installation of the new septic system!
This has been probably the most critical job we've done. The new system covers both the house and the rustico and includes black water, white/grey water and storm water.
The contractors spent the last few hours of today smoothing and tamping down the earth in the disturbed area. Now we need to dump a few loads of gravel on it to avoid a bog when it rains.
Unfortunately, despite a lot of money being spent, we don't have much to show for it!
We will just have to be happy in the knowledge that we can shower and flush with utter confidence that it is all flowing well and in the right direction...
