NEW! - Design: Gravity Distribution (1 hr)

Design of Gravity Distribution Soil Treatment Areas

Overview -  An onsite wastewater treatment system is a very effective means of treating wastewater and protecting the environment. Gravity dispersal systems, such as gravel trenches, offer an energy free means for dispersal as well as low maintenance and low cost. Gravity dispersal systems represent the most prominent number of installations in the U.S. and Canada and dispersal via gravity will continue to be the most prominent.
Learning Objectives - At the conclusion of this presentation, the participate will be able to:
  1. Recognize the benefits and drawbacks of gravity dispersals systems
  2. Discuss the fundamentals of the mechanics of gravity distribution
  3. Recognize the role of Biomat
  4. Discuss the differing system types (beds, trenches, etc.)
