You should check with the city hall in your city/town....each area has different rules...in the town I live in they inspect and if it is not at least the distance specified it will not be approved

From Watersystemsorg.com

"State health departments set the minimum distance standards, which can range from 25 to 200 feet separation from a septic tank and 50 to 400 feet separation from a drainfield. Check with your water well professional, septic tank service company or local health department for standards in your area. "

the well should also be uphill from the tank if possible, and the inspection approving the installation will govern. If any questions, ask the inspectors in advance.
