As most of you probably know we are now looking to buy a farm. The one we are interested in will need a new septic system. We were talking about someday putting in a pond to stock with fish and as a water supply the fire dept. could use if need be. Someone suggested that we have the pond dug at the same time as the septic since the heavy machinery will already be there. Does this sound like a good idea or are we trying to take on too much to begin with? Ken S. mentioned a lower insurance rate if water is available at the site so to me that seems to justify going ahead with it. Also, I was going to have the soil conservation officer come out to determin the best location. Wondering what kind of fee that will involve. Thanks for any help, P.L.
