It might be worth trying to bring water to the site in a 5-55 gal drum.  Pour water down the toilets.
Another thought is to bring a generator to get the well pump started, which you should also want to test anyway.

The property has only been vacant for about 30 days and the septic tank was inspected by HUD before it was put on the market. The lender that I am going through requires that I have a septic tank inspection done anyway. It is well water.

Since it has been vacant for a long time, the lines will be very dry and it may not be a truly valid test anyway.

Is it a well or city water? The electric will need to be one for the well pump and the septic grinder pump.
