Camdenton. You are totally wrong. Not only does Missouri regulate lagoons but they have strict guide lines. I am a licensed installer. If you have a sewer issue, turn the problem in to the appropriate agency for your county and watch the fireworks.

Default Hello...

Lagoons are gross.

Septic systems, however, are perfectly fine systems to deal with a natural by-product of human habitation. You want to wiggle around and say that's gross, go visit the sewer plant in any city.

And "perc" stand for "percolate"...how liquids sift through the ground.

For basic yet detailed info, might gander at: WQ402 Residential Sewage Lagoon Systems: A Homeowner's Guide to Installation and Maintenance, MU Extension

FWIW, in the houses I owned in MO, both had lagoons - and to note, not once did any gov't agency monitor/regulate/inspect these sewer ponds, or any other homeowners that I'm aware of [of course, such teeth depend upon the county/area ya live]. The three homes I've had since then have all been septic. Properly constructed and maintained, both systems work great. And in the lagoons, crappie season is open all year round.

IMHO nothing wrong with lagoons. My husband installed them for many years here in central Missouri. Never any problems if this is done properly. I assisted him on many a job years ago and know first hand the work that goes into them. Actually, at the Lake Development that we built we have a lagoon. It 'works' perfectly! It is located on the north side of our dam and never an odor or problem.

Oh, I agree, LJ. If I had MY druthers, septic systems, etc. But in some of the more rural areas around here, a small lagoon for a single family home/farm is really not a bad thing. Most of them have fences around them and they are put in 'sunny' areas of the property owner's acreage. I do know what you mean.

My husband used to do these tests when he worked for a civil engineering firm 20 years ago. Where is your land located??? Mine is north of Stover.

Thanks very much! Our land is in Mountain Grove. Not far from "town" actually, and a an area with several other nice homes. We have three acres heavily wooded. Went back last summer and cleared a swath but haven't done anything else since. Have plans with architect now. Retirement April 2008!!! I appreciate the replies on the question I posted in April. It still has been on my mind. Thus far, none of the neighbors there have had any problems and/or difficulties with the septics. We have had septics here in our area in the Sierras foothills forever. The soil here is very sandy, decomposed granite, not much of what I think of as soil. Again, thanks you all! I will try to remember to check in more often...
