This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Homesteading.

In this Badge Bit, you will check the status of a septic system.  Note that this BB is part of a four-part choose your own adventure list BB called Little List. You must complete four Badge Bits in the Little List.
