The cost of replacing a leaching field can be extremely variable even in a specific locale. Mine cost $2500 2 years ago in Kentucky, I've heard of much higher and much lower locally, due to clay, depth do bedrock, health department regulations, slope of site, etc, etc.

I suggest you get at least 2 locally licensed septic installers to give you estimates which should include them getting any and all permits for the site.

Paying them an extra $100 for permits is a lot cheaper than you taking time off work, fighting with regulators, misunderstanding requirements, and generally losing your patience.
Best of luck.
