How about a mound system or drip irrigation system or subsurface sand filter or even spray irrigation of treated effluent? There has to be more to this story than portrayed by the Dispatch.
My son in law works for the Health Department in another county and is in charge of certifying building lots for septic systems. He says the mound system could cost in excess of 20k, depending on location. I've also seen him force residents to move out due to improper systems. Fix it or pay the consequences, pollution will not be tolerated.

The City of Columbus destroyed our septic field when putting in storm water sewage. We could not afford to tie into sewer line business neighbor built. We had to consolidate our bills and move to another place. Three years later able to sell the house. Now a plumbing company owns it. All my retirement savings is gone. We like our place we living in now but we are underwater where before we had a home and land that was paid for free and clear. There was no notice that this was going to happen. No warning. No education. When the water from the whole street backed up into my basement, it was search and find and seek and pay out dollars to everyone big time till start to understand what happened. It was very depressing, stressful, and hurtful to our health and to our relationship tour family and friends. We had lived in the home for many years with no problem. Education is very necessary and grants not only for low income ready to lose home people but for hard working people and no we do not have high income but when I lost 2/3 of my stock to the stock market then lost my job to cutbacks with 2 homes to pay housepayments on and retired husband with no pension, it not easy. I did succeed in finding a job after many months of looking. So that is my story. City of Columbus, council, or checking out about lawyers did not help. It was a no win situation. But somehow thru the Lord, we are taken care of. Praise Jesus.

In most cases, the city would have offered to let you tap into the sewer system and tie the payments to your property tax bill. Are you sure they didn't approach you on this?
