A perc test is for septic systems. you can get a raised septic where you would bring in the required fill for a leach field, they also have enviro designs that use a fabric system that filters it in pur drainage. You need to contact a septic installation company for estimates. Now as far as a well i would imaging they are worried about a pour drainage area for a leach field and contaminents going into your well. If you are in or near a shoreland zone there are septic systems that will not allow the contamination, they could be pricy though. why are the picking on you now after 23 years? good luck
