Lilac Bush Near a Septic Tank

I had planted a beautiful lilac bush 3 years ago 4 feet from our septic tank not really thinking about how big it would get. This bush had gotten huge and growing twice as fast as all the other beautiful lilac's I have around the house, my only concern is what is the root system like? I am concerned that the roots have gone into our septic tank. How do they root? Can I move such a big bush now?

i dont know about moving it. but i was told a couple times in the past that people used to always plant a lilac right next to the outhouse. they knew it would grow really well in that specific local. ?
