Dogwood Tree Roots

What should I expect the (maximum) depth of my Dogwood tree's roots to be ?
I became aware yesterday that the tree is very close to the septic system overflow pit at my house, and am concerned about roots drinking the darkwaters.
I live on Long Island, NY, where soil is shallow top soil, loam and sand.
