A site plan (sketch) showing dimensions of property, proposed and/or existing structure or structures, driveways, underground and overhead utilities on the property and adjacent sewage disposal systems, bodies of water, drainage ways, agricultural drain tile, wells, cisterns, and springs for a minimum of 200 feet radius of the center of the proposed building or drainfield is necessary in order to evaluate the suitability of a subsurface soil absorption system for that site. In addition, for new construction, the boundary of the lot and building site shall be staked. As a minimum, prior to issuance of the construction permit the perimeter of the soil absorption area site or sites shall be shown on a copy of a surveyed plat of the property. When a parcel of land consisting of a single lot is involved on which an onsite sewage disposal system is proposed to be located and is not directly influenced by the off site location of any sewage disposal system, well, body of water, etc., the requirement for the surveyed plat may be waived by the district or local health department.
