If you are selecting a rural site for a new house or cabin, make wastewater treatment one of your top considerations. Many people have been financially surprised to learn, after buying that perfect lot on land away from a public sewer works, that their lot is not suitable for an on-site wastewater treatment system. The lot may be too small or the system will cost substantially more than the customary rate because of special construction requirements.
