Would like to build a shop but the lateral lines are nearby. There are 5 lines running from NE to SW on the property. The tank is SE of them all. Only the southern most lateral line affects me. How close can I get to it with slab foundation for a shop?

Also wondering if I could remove the southern most one and add another on the north side.

I guess you don't need a permit.
Around here you would have to submit a copy of your plate with your septic system & proposed building on it among other things. Every county here has different regs., but you want to make sure you are also not building in your septic reserve area & not driving over your laterals. Also, if you wanted to move a lateral that would open whole another can of worms.

No permits needed. Out in the county and I'm pretty much on my own.

Just wanted to know if there was a good rule of thumb on how far to keep structures away from lateral lines.
