Infiltration, poor soils, and a high water table overwhelmed the chamber drainfield serving a two-bedroom mobile home in Clayton, Ga. Knowing the owner could not afford to replace it, the Rabun County Environmental Health Department contacted Georgia Conservancy, an environmental organization that secured a $3,300 grant.

Harold Kilgore of Gravelator Systems in Talmo won the design/installation bid. After accounting for setbacks, he found that 2,500 square feet remained for a replacement system. "Three-quarters of the 1.5-acre lot was floodplain with creeks running thought it," he says. "Even what soil evaluators called usable was the best of the worst."
