This wastewater drywell article discusses special safety, collapse, and fatality hazards special to drywells (or seepage pits) and gives safety and maintenance advice.
Readers trying to diagnose and deal with sudden soil subsidence or yard collapses should see CESSPOOL SAFETY WARNINGS as those hazards can also apply to drywells and septic tanks, and also see SINKHOLES, WARNING SIGNS.
