Find Local Requirements

Every jurisdiction has its own requirements, so check your local building codes and health department for the requirements applicable to your location. In addition to distance from a well, there may be requirements about how close the tank can be to a body of water or drain field requirements that must be met.

Bottom Line

The septic tank should be as far away from your well as possible, but it must be least as far away from the well as required by local building codes and health department regulations.
