<br />Mrs. Larsen stated that she had talked with a realtor recently and received the
<br />impression that the Wheeler property did not even have a drainfield. It allegedly
<br />had a system that could adequately serve the property for approximately ten years.
<br />She stated that if a drainfield were in the property, there would be no problem
<br />at this time. Wheeler stated that he did have a drainfield, as required by the

<br />that it would be possible to install the beginning of the system, adequate to serve
