Have a piece of property with 10" top soil and have gone down 4" with only sand, but land is saturated.. Located near a river, but current elevation near 20' above waters surface. Suspect a hard pan or clay layer below sand layer preventing drainage.
Need to develop way to make land drier so septic field can be laid or constructed. Looking for recommendations.
One thought would be to see if drilling holes through hard pan/clay might offer escape for excess water and improve drainage and eventual
septic site development.
