Dave from Saratoga Springs, New York writes regarding
building a greywater system in the woods. The environment
is Adirondack woods, 65" rainfall per year, elev. 400 ft.
The soil is sandy. His goal is to use well or rain water.
There is a primitive cabin already on the site.

I believe NY is about to switch to the International
Plumbing Code appendix C. This code has some serious
defects, as does it's predecessor. Refer to IPC improvements
You'd be better off doing an "experimental" system if
possible, or not getting a permit.
