Day 17: Packing Dirt & a Visit from the Health Department

W got up and shoveled dirt into the spot where the last of the block were set.  Then he hooked up three of our garden sprinklers.  Water will help pack the dirt more tightly.  It is necessary for the dirt to be packed well so that the drain lines set by the plumber will not shift at a later date.

Rain would be even better to pack the dirt.  In spite of all the chances of rain, we never got enough to do much good.  Sprinklers had to do the job instead.

A worker from the health department came out to let us know where we could put the septic tank.  Fortunately the area we wanted it was acceptable.  Another item off our checklist.
