My friend is considering buying an historical home in Bethlehem, Indiana, which sits on the banks of the Ohio. The town has no city water supply system, nor sewers, and all houses are on wells with septic systems. MY question is, how does the septic system work without spoiling the water in the wells? The town is every bit of four country blocks, and everyone is undoubtedly on the same well, and contributing their septic to the same ground, which is flat. A second problem is, the house has a lot of only 70 feet x 50 feet, and the septic’s “field” probbly doesn’t go beyond it. Wells and septics. Is that like cats and dogs?
