I would like to plant a Vitex tree over my septic tank. Do the roots run deep or is this a reasonable plan? I don’t want the roots to grow into the septic tank.

    You shouldn’t plant any trees over your septic tank.  Any sort of trees planted near a septic tank will inevitably cause a septic system failure.  It is a particularly bad idea to plant fruit trees or vegetables over the septic tank, as it might produce food that is unsafe to eat.
