Septic Repair Disturbs Underground Spring
I had to have a new effluent tank installed over the winter (pumps wastewater uphill to drainfield) because the original installation(2 pumps in a large plastic tank), which sat in a brick-lined pit, was completely flooded. In the course of installing a 1,000 gallon holding tank, the spring that originally flooded the pit (now filled) came above ground and now a good portion of the front yard is part of a nontidal wetland!
I suppose it will dry if the water table ever goes down enough to dry the spring, but I'm writing to see if anyone had a similar experience and possible solution for this issue.
In retrospect, I should have had a much smaller tank installed, but the excavator claimed that a smaller installation would tend to float if it were flooded.
So now I have a muddy mess in the front yard due to the small stream trickling up from underground.
Thanks for any advice
PS: I didn't post this in Ponds because I don't want one ;-)
