I am planning to purchase a piece of raw land in Lamoille County Vermont, this summer; I plan to use a composting toilet (new one), and hope to only have to put in a septic system which covers grey water d/c.
Reading the Q&A from a previous Q has been quite helpful (thanks!).
One property I have my eye on, already has a conv septic design in place, so I guess now I just need to talk to the state, to be sure I know what needs to be done to get a permit for the Innovative Alternative (I/A) - fingers crossed that it will save me some $$.
I already have someone reliable and affordable to do all of the site work and installation, so I feel fortunate in that regard......hopefully the state regs won't give me fits :/

I am glad to have any additional info/input regarding this topic

I still have to slog through it, but I've posted below, State of Vermont DEC link and it's contents (C&P'd, though it came out a bit fragmented), showing some helpful info.
