Mystery pipe in yard

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here. I thought I would try my luck with the brainpower on this site. I bought a home in the Chapel Hill, NC area a couple of years ago and I found these two pvc pipes in the ground in the back yard. I need to replace the lid to cover the pipes, but I can't for the life of me figure out what they are for. I am attaching some pictures that will hopefully help. It's a bit hard to see all the way to the bottom of the pipes, but it looks like one is open to dirt and the other has some kind of pvc joint attached.

Do you have a septic system? Are they near or over your septic leach field?

I do have a septic, but the pipes are nowhere near the leach field.
