I need to run a gutter over part of roof (about a 15' x 30' section). Easiest place to put downspout is where water discharge will go where septic tank is. I am thinking this would not be a good idea because it could loosen soil around/under tank. Opinions?

I agree, it shouldn't affect the tank any but you don't want to add more water to the drain field. It's always a good idea to pipe the downspout away from the foundation.
