The leach field runs beneath the gravel and rock pad and will be able to service two homes once work is complete.

Patrick McGrath, the owner of property at 895 Mitkof Highway displayed the ongoing construction work at his home and challenged a reporter to find raw sewage on his property.

The homeowner was accused by letter, of having septic waste on his land by a disgruntled individual.

Copies of the letter were sent to neighboring property owners, the newspaper, Borough administrators and the Alaska Dept. of Environmental Conservation. Candice Bressler, Public Information Officer with the ADEC told the Pilot they never received the letter. The letters were postmarked from Petersburg on Dec. 6.
