I have heard that a good place to plant weeping willows is at the end of septic system lines. Is this true, if so how far from the lines?

It's true that roots of willows seek out water, but they're terribly invasive and will ruin a drainfield in no time at all. I'd keep willow trees far, far away from septic lines!
