A written report on the site evaluation must be prepared and include the following:
dates of preliminary and field evaluations;
a map drawn to scale or dimension with a north arrow, and including:
horizontal and vertical reference points of the proposed soil treatment and dispersal areas, soil observations, percolation tests, and pertinent distance from the proposed ISTS to all required setbacks, lot improvements, easements, ordinary high water mark of public waters, property lines, and direction and percent slope;
the location of any unsuitable, disturbed, or compacted areas; and
the access route for system maintenance;
the estimated depth of periodically saturated soil layer, bedrock, or flood elevation, if appropriate;
the proposed elevation of the bottom of the soil treatment and dispersal system;
anticipated construction-related issues;
the name, address, telephone number, and certified statement of the individual conducting the site evaluation;
an assessment of how known or reasonably foreseeable land use changes are expected to affect system performance, including, but not limited to, changes in drainage patterns, increased impervious surfaces, and proximity of new water supply wells;
a narrative explaining any difficulties encountered during the site evaluation, including but not limited to identifying and interpreting soil and landform features and how the difficulties were resolved; and
a notation of any differences between observed soil characteristics and those identified in the soil survey report.
