Water abstraction point (well, spring or borehole) – 50 metres

Watercourse (a ditch, stream or river) – 10 metres

No access roads, driveways, pathways or buildings are to bewithin the drainage field area and if it is in a field, then tractors nor any heavy plant are not allowed to drive over it.

No water or electric cable or pipes should be within the drainage field area.

The bedrock or water table should not, at any time, be within 1.2 metres of the drainage field or its pipework.

These are purely basic guidelines, for any further information on septic tank emptying or septic tank installations please cal lour team on 0800 61 22 515.
