First, you need an inspection and permit from your Health Department to put in a new septic system. They should soil-test the site and custom design your system.
Installing a septic system normally isn't a DIY job, and if I were you, I would plan on getting bids from experienced, professional septic system companies.
It will have to be inspected and approved prior to burial.
Good Luck!
Mike
