A detailed Guide to Sustainable Decentralized Wastewater SystemsCovering technical principles and practical applications, this comprehensive resource explains how to design and construct sound and sustainable decentralized wastewater systems of varying sizes and in differing geophysical conditions.
Planning and Installing Sustainable Onsite Wastewater Systems covers state-of-the-art techniques, materials, and industry practices, and provides detailed explanations for why certain approaches result in more sustainable projects. A rational approach is presented for assessing assimilative capabilities of soils, and selecting methods of wastewater treatment and dispersal that make optimal use of natural treatment processes and site conditions. In-depth design and construction information highlights nonproprietary methods proven to be very sustainable and cost effective on a long-term basis for many geographic settings. Step-by-step illustrations and project examples featuring real-world implementations of onsite wastewater systems are included in this definitive volume. Planning and Installing Sustainable Wastewater Systems covers:Sustainability factors and planning considerations for decentralized wastewater systemsProject planning and site evaluationWastewater collection and conveyance methodsDesign and installation of primary treatment unitsComparisons of secondary and advanced treatment methodsSand filter constructionSubsurface flow wetland performance and constructionEffluent dispersal methodsDesign and installation of low-pressure dosed effluent dispersal systems
