Sanitary Sewage Systems:  Sanitary Sewage Systems Objectives:  Objectives Understand basic needs of sanitary sewage systems Learn basic sanitary sewage systems Read and comprehend a State Code book Important definitions:  Important definitions Aerobic – treatment of sewage with the use of oxygen Anaerobic – treatment of sewage when no oxygen present Building sewer – piping from house to sewer system. Common collector – piping system that transports manure from 3 or fewer properties. Important definitions:  Important definitions Liquid capacity – the volume of a tank below the outlet pipe Subsurface seepage system – subsurface seepage field, seepage bed and system that treated sewage is released How is the Code made?:  How is the Code made? Federal regulations EPA State regulations EPA Department of Public Health ASTM – American Society for Testing and Materials NSF – National Sanitary Foundation General Requirements:  General Requirements Appendix A Used to determine sewage flows General Requirements:  General Requirements Designed to accept domestic sewage NOT Discharge from roof or footing tile lines Backwash water from water softener Go thru seepage field but not septic tank Hot tub wastewater Motorized vehicle grease, oil & chemicals Separation distances:  Separation distances horizontal sewer lines need to be 10 ft away from water lines If sewer line is within 10ft of water line, the water line needs to be at least 18” above sewer line Sanitary Sewer:  Sanitary Sewer Hook up to sanitary sewer when it is w/in 200ft of residential property w/ flow <1500gpm >1500gpm hook up to sanitary system w/in 1000 ft Pipe Size, Materials & Slope:  Pipe Size, Materials & Slope Type Ductile iron Vitrified clay Plastic pipe Minimum 4” diameter Gravity flow 1:100 >50’ requires clean out Sewer System Development:  Sewer System Development Do not design in area where surface water accumulates Proper distances away from critical areas No swimming pools, sprinkling systems, underground utilities in area No limestone or bedrock w/in 4’ from bottom of system Variance/Experimental Design:  Variance/Experimental Design Variance – an extension for a proposed installation that cannot be compliant with regulations Experimental design – an unapproved sewage system that is being tested for approval by Dept of Health Garbage Disposals:  Garbage Disposals Receives waste from kitchen At least ½ size of liquid volume in septic tank or 500 gal Private Sewage Design Systems:  Private Sewage Design Systems Primary Systems Septic Tanks Imhoff Tanks Aerobic treatment Plants Private Sewage Design Systems:  Private Sewage Design Systems Secondary Systems Subsurface seepage field Waste stabilization pond Seepage bed Sand filter Gravelless seepage Chamber Peat filter Private Sewage Design Systems:  Private Sewage Design Systems Holding Tanks Raised Filter Beds Mounds Other systems Privies Chemical Toilets Recirculating toilets Incinerator toilets Compost toilets Septic Tanks:  Septic Tanks Prefabricated Made from Poured concrete Precast concrete Concrete block Plastic Fiberglass thermoplastic Septic Tanks:  Septic Tanks Depth Liquid min = 42” Max depth = 72” Water tight connections Proper access 12” diameter Over inlet and outlet Septic Tanks - Baffles:  Septic Tanks - Baffles Septic Tanks:  Septic Tanks <500 gpm = 750 gal >500 gpm = 1.5 * sewage flow >1350 gpm 2 or more tanks in series Multi-compartment tanks Distribution Boxes:  Distribution Boxes A manifold between primary and secondary systems Need access to inside of box Inspection Maintenance Cleaning Soil Tests:  Soil Tests Why? Percolation Test Required by qualified person Seepage Fields:  Seepage Fields Gravel With gravel around piping Gravelless No gravel around piping Chamber Similar to gravelless Seepage Fields:  Seepage Fields Size based on soil type Between 6-24” of backfill over bed 5’ of undisturbed earth between septic tank & field Top of seepage field at least 1” lower than distribution box or septic tank outlet Seepage Fields:  Seepage Fields Bottom of field >3’ from bedrock w/ original soil Max 2’ of fill soil can be used Do not compact Percolation test required Gravel Seepage Field:  Gravel Seepage Field Bedding material Clean gravel ¾”<diameter<4” Full width of trench 6” below bottom of line 2” above top of line Gravel Seepage Field:  Gravel Seepage Field Distribution lines Suitable materials Perforated line ½”<holes< ¾” open joint line ¼”<tile sections< ½” 3-5” oc 2 rows Holes point downward Gravel Seepage Field:  Gravel Seepage Field Separation Material Straw Newspaper Untreated building paper Geotextile fabric Other permeable or biodegradable material System can be open or closed loop Gravelless Seepage Field:  Gravelless Seepage Field At least 8” or 10” polyethylene pipe Gravelless Seepage Field:  Gravelless Seepage Field Holes 2 rows 8” = 3/8” 10” = ½” Gravelless Seepage Field:  Gravelless Seepage Field Must have filter wrap encased in pipe Bedding material Excavated soil Bends > 5’ radius Closed loop not required but must be capped at end Serial Distribution:  Serial Distribution Open loop system Min 6” of earth backfill over bedding material Trench should follow surface contours Min 5’ between septic tank & trench First line lower than septic tank Serial Distribution:  Serial Distribution Relief lines flow waste to next trench Connects to top of pipe of higher trench Seepage Beds:  Seepage Beds Total bottom area = 1.5 * area specified Appendix A Illustration H Chamber Systems:  Chamber Systems Chambers minimum 7’ apart Example Appendix A Illustration I Exhibit E Can use backfill since it will not prevent backflow Buried Sand Filters:  Buried Sand Filters Will have discharge from filter area Residential = 200 ft2/bedroom Aerobic treatment before filter reduces size by 50% Minimum size to treat 100 GPD Buried Sand Filters:  Buried Sand Filters Media Minimum 24” depth 0.5mm<granular size< 2.0mm Clean Other media can be used Chemically & biologically inert Support biological growth Hardness equivalent >= sand Buried Sand Filter:  Buried Sand Filter Recirculating Sand Filter:  Recirculating Sand Filter Waste Stabilization Pond:  Waste Stabilization Pond Setbacks No trees Length 3X width Capacity = 60X daily flow 3 ft< depth < 5 ft 2 ft freeboard Impermeable bottom Raised Filter Bed:  Raised Filter Bed Loading rate = 4 gal/ft2/day for residential systems < 1500 GPD >1500 GPD = 2.5 gal/ft2/day Maximum area >600 ft2 More area needed = multiple beds at least 15’ apart 0.5mm < media size < 2.0mm 30” depth Raised Filter Bed:  Raised Filter Bed Mantle area A=Q*T/25 A = Area of mantle Q = quantity of wastewater/day T = percolation time, min/in Mantle area = area of filter bed Not designed for percolation rates > 120 min/in Raised Filter Bed:  Raised Filter Bed Distribution piping 4” perforated piping Level 15” o.c.
