To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

   test soil for pathogens below the septic tank drain field
       at least six points
       at least three depths
   under a mulch pit
       at least three points
       at least three depths
   under a willow tree fed willow candy
       at least three points
       at least three depths
   repeat tests every two months for six rounds of testing


To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must show proof of the following (as pictures or a video < 2 mins):
 - show before, progress, and after of improving the quality of groundwater at a property
 - demonstrate that it meets the above requirements
