Not sure what these are?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have an idea what this row of cleanouts are for? They were located at the back of the property near the fence. I was able to remove one of the caps and there is another smaller pipe inside. Home is on septic which is located at the front of the home. Lawn sprinkler system is installed.

If they're 40" deep, they're groundwater monitoring wells. They are installed in relation to a septic system. It could be monitoring conditions for/from a septic system on an adjacent property.

Sometimes they are monitoring wells the EPA puts in due to an oil tank leak. Most of those that I've seen have an embossed cap though, but not all.
