Easy access for sure....... but most of the lower half of the US has only seen a basement on TV.

Check valves or backflow valves have been a code requirement around here for many years. If you have an old house you may be "grandfathered" out of the requirement but would be well advised to get one installed. Also a cut off valve in case the check valve leaks as has been mentioned by others. And if all else goes to h===, go down the line and cut out a section and plug it.
If I were far enough out I'd have a septic tank. You could put one in place ready to hook-up if needed without telling anyone. I know one fellow who had to service his and when they dug it up, it was an old cast iron pot belly stove laid in a gravel bed. Worked for probably a hundred years. He owned the place for 50 years and never knew about it.
And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him;... Genesis 16:12

I too am on the side of big hill. I'm about 100 ft below the highest house but about 200 above the lowest point. Unless there is sewer damage from an earthquake, I don't think I'll problems. And no basement here.
