        We have a newer trailer in northern MI, located on an area of our property with a high water table. It will only be used weekends, and a few weeks in the fall. The inspector wishes us to move the trailer to a high sandy hill on our property and put in a septic tank/field there. (Weve been using a smaller trailer with a holding tank while we redo the newer one.) Moving the newer trailer uphill thru the woods would involve a great deal of work/expense. What are our alternatives that would involve the least dollar outlay? Could we pump the sewage uphill to a septic field? Approx cost for pump? Could we build a mound? Should we buy a big holding tank for the new trailer? Approx cost for holding tank? Are there any other ideas? We would most appreciated your letting us know what our best plan of action should be that involves the least expense. E-mail me at the above address. Thank you.

          if the distance isnt too far to be feasible, pumping is a safe alternative.This involves setting 2 septic tanks (1 to break down solids connected to second to pump from). Approximate cost above conventional system would be expense for second tank, pump, and pipe to reach field line and of course extra labor.: We have a newer trailer in northern MI, located on an area of our property with a high water table.
