    you need to make sure its all the way collapsed first. and you dont want to lay topsoil to thick b/c it may take a while to become hard enough to walk or mow. but def make sure its fully collapsed.

    The method approved in my area for abandoning a septic tank (sounds like a tank by your description) or cesspool is to have it pumped then filled with clean sand.
