Possible pond problems
we built a home and we are trying to install a septic system. with all the wet weather we have had it has been tough, however it did dry out for quite a few days and it was still wet. we have a neighbor that installed a pond last year and other neighbors said they had trouble having the pond hold water. also while installing the foundation we hit a field tile and when we did the installers showed me some nice bluegill that had landed in the basement from the pipe. i am wondering if that pond is leaking into my property and that is why our yard is not drying out fast enough? did they have to have a permit to install that pond and have it inspected? we are lower than their land (pond) and even my installer said it could be a problem. how do i find out these answers to these questions. frustrated home owner. we are in licking county if you need to know. any replys would be wonderful.
