In process of closing on home with failed septic

Hi! I’m in the process of closing on a house with a failed septic field discovered during inspection. We had the county and septic company come out for a perc test. It was determined that we did not have room for the required setbacks. The main issue is a storm sewer, inside the required setback. unless it is water tight, we will be required by the county to have a pretreatment system installed. The septic company told me this could be at worse $80,000. Whereas a standard system would be around $10,000. We are having a difficult time determining if the storm sewer is water tight or not. The appraisal is in to underwriting and will be released next week. Lender is aware of septic as the front yard is ripped up. How should we negotiate the cost of replacing the field with the sellers?
