A "plot plan" is a drawing viewed from above that shows the locations of important features of your property. (Think of looking down at your property from an airplane.) The plot plan is best prepared by a qualified engineer or architect, but many homeowners choose to draw the plot plan.
A plot plan is required in order to obtain a well or sewage permit because:
Thought should be put into the site layout, so go to the property and think about where things should be located. Consider plumbing and drainage, and make sure septic tanks are located in a place that is easily accessible for pumping. Also, the only covering that should be over the drainfield is grass, so it should be in a location where other landscaping will not take place, and where other buildings such as sheds or garages will not be built.
