Yes, your problem may very well be beyond the tank the water is not escaping fast enough out of the tank, to cause the water to rise at the less restrictive point, look beyond the tank make sure the water is coming or going out of the tank unless you have never had the tank pumped out, but in most cases the line beyond the tank is crushed or blocked.

How do you build a driveway over a septic tank?

A septic tank is not strong enough to carry a load. Providing you support the drive and carry the load some other way, than by using the septic, then all will be OK. Do make sure that there is easy access for emptying, inspection, and maintenance to the drain field, and sewage pipe connections. Do keep in mind that the microbes that do the work, prefer a temperature of 95f, laying a road above the tank will prevent the sun from warming the tank and will lead to slower process and more frequent emptying. (and cost) Of course you can deal with this by fitting 6 inches of polystyrene over all surfaces, to keep the warmth in. (remember heat moves down and sideways, as well as up)

How to Clean a Septic Tank?

An overfilled septic tank can cause backups in a sewer line, causing many problems in a plumbing system. If a septic tank has overflowed, it is usually clogged with excessive organic debris. A septic tank cleaner can be a good first step when treating a septic tank overflow. Septic tank cleaners contain natural bacteria and enzymes, designed to break down organic material in human waste. Excessive disposal of bleach and detergents into a septic line can kill these bacteria, preventing the breakdown of septic waste in a tank. If a septic cleaner doesn't clear a tank after a week, it may be necessary to use a professional septic tank cleaning service.

Why would an upstairs toilet drain into a downstairs sink?

All upstairs plumbing fixtures drain through vertical pipes in the walls, connect to the horizontal pipes under the house and continue downslope to the city sewer or your septic tank. A backup into a downstairs fixture from an upper one indicates that there is a blockage in the drain line under the house downslope from the one receiving the backup. In this situation when a upper toilet is flushed the water with refuse reaches the stoppage and backs up into the lowest fixture downstairs, usually a shower, a tub or in this case a sink.
