water/sewage line to garage?

I live in illinois and would like to run a water and sewage line to my workshop in my garage for a bathroom. Is this possible? Is it costly? the garage is about 50ft from my house and i have a septic tank that's about 25ft away.

dpb894, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
It's possible. Since you are in the North, you will have to provide protection from freezing. This includes in your shop. Is it heated all winter? You will still have to follow your local codes. Slope for the drain to the septic will be 1/8" to 1/4" per foot so you are only talking 6" of drop. The water lines will be the problem. Your frost level is probably about 4'. check these things out and go for it if you want. Good luck.
