Design: Soil Properties (2 hr)

Soil is an integral component of onsite wastewater systems. It's major functions are to serve as a base to disperse effluent into or onto the earth; a critical treatment component; and serve as a respository to cycle nutrients and water into the local watershed. Discussion of fundamental soil properties such as texture. clay mineralogy, color, and soil structure of the internal soil profile will be presented along with soil landscape characteristics. Emphasis of soil properties which influence treatment and dispersal of effluent will be provided as well as modified by landscape position and geometry.
