I used to own a house in Seattle that was built in 1930; the house was connected to the municipal sewer system. When I mowed the back yard there was sometimes an odd booming sound but I didn't give it much thought. Got up one morning to find a big hole in the backyard; an ancient cedar septic tank had finally collapsed after 50 years. The was nothing in it, so filled it with rubble, topped it with earth and replanted the grass.
