UPDATE

ISDH conducted a number of Enviro-Septic® site inspections during the spring of 2009 to assess how well these systems are functioning. While the vast majority of Enviro-Septic® Systems were installed correctly and functioning properly, there were a few design/installation errors that were seen frequently enough to warrant corrective action. The various problems identified had one thing in common-the result was hydraulic overload (flooding) of the treatment field. Since Enviro-Septic® is an aerobic treatment system, saturated conditions are detrimental to its function. Not surprisingly, these problems became most noticeable during the heavy rains that occurred in the spring of 2009, when onsite systems were subjected to heavy storm water run-off.

The Design Worksheet  and the accompanying materials give you the benefit of knowledge and experience we’ve developed through the years, and we’re confident that using them will make your job easier and help ensure the quality of Enviro-Septic® designs and installations in Indiana.

The Design Worksheet (pdf) was developed in cooperation with ISDH. In an effort to ensure consistent, high-quality design and installation of Enviro-Septic® systems, PEI and ISDH are strongly recommending the use of this form. Consistent use of this form by all designers and installers will also make it easier for the local health departments to perform their required inspections. In order to assure that everyone involved is “on the same page,” completed forms are to be provided to the designer, the installer, the system owner and the local health officer. Click here for a helpful, informative presentation on the use of the new worksheets. The Installation Checklist is available within the Design Worksheet (pdf) and as a stand alone form. It can be a valuable inspection tool.

Applicability

The following deviations to Montana Circular 4 Design Standards can be used for non-public wastewater systems (those that serve less than 25 people for 60 days) with residential strength waste and a design capacity of less than 2,500 gpd.

  • DEQ-4, Standard 8.3.2.3: Presby laterals may be placed a minimum of two feet on center with zero distance between trench walls. The centerline-centerline distance between the two outermost pipe laterals shall not exceed 14 ft.
  • DEQ-4, Standard 8.3.2.4: For the purposes of sizing, Presby lateral trenches must not be considered more than 48 inches wide.
  • DEQ-4, Standard 13.2.3: Presby lateral trenches may use gravity distribution up to 48 inches.
  • DEQ-4, Standard 13.2.4: When installing a Presby system, the absorption system size in square footage per Chapter 8 may be reduced in size by 50 percent for soil percolation rates less than 51 mpi and 25 percent for soil percolation rates between 51 and 120 mpi..

For application of AES to public wastewater systems (those that serve more than 25 people for 60 days and a design capacity of less than 2,500 gpd) or to systems with greater than residential strength waste, Montana DEQ will consider granting a variance.

Certification Training Classes

Presby Environmental strongly encourages all those involved in the design, installation or permitting of an onsite Advanced Enviro-Septic® or Enviro-Septic® System to attend a certification course. Certification is required for those who design or install Multi-Level™ Advanced Enviro-Septic® or Enviro-Septic® Systems.

CEUs May Apply
GSDI is offering 4 CEUs for Certified Septic Evaluators who have taken and passed our certification course. This is for a one-time use. Those who have taken credit for the course cannot take the course again and claim the credit again.

DES Subsurface Systems Bureau is offering 3 Continuing Education Credit Hours. Permitted Designers and Installers who have taken and passed our online certification course after March 25, 2010. This is for a one time use. When credit is taken for our course, credit will not be given if the course is taken again.

2019 Advanced Enviro-Septic® and Enviro-Septic® Pipe Manual

New Hampshire grants New Innovative/Alternative Technology Approval allowing a 30" vertical separation distance to seasonal high water table, bedrock or other impermeable surface. Enviro-Septic® design plans already approved with a 36" separation distance may be amended by the designer to reflect a 30" separation distance without submitting a new application to NHDES (if system size and location are not changed). Designers must incorporate a note reflecting this revised ITA Approval on all Enviro-Septic plans. Click here for more information (PDF file)

Enviro-Septic® and Advanced Enviro-Septic® Venting Clarification:

All Advanced Enviro-Septic® Systems must be vented; however Enviro Septic® systems still follow the venting guidelines put forth in the 2003 Enviro-Septic® Leaching Systems Design and Installation Manual. These require a vent when:

  • When a pump is used to gain elevation from the septic tank to the leach field
  • When there is more than 18” of cover over the field
  • When under any parking, roads, or other hardscape that will reduce air passage.
  • All Multi Level Systems must be vented.

The information contained in the 2003 manual is still relevant for Enviro Septic® Systems, and we do still support the Enviro Septic® product.

We do recommend all systems to be vented, whether AES or ES. A vent will mitigate future situations out of the designers control, such as additional soil cover used in landscaping, occasional instances of higher volume loading, etc.

Bypass Venting Alternative to Differential Venting

(Differential venting is required for systems utilizing a pump to gain elevation to the field)

Flow Equalizers

When do we require flow equalizers and what type is allowed?

A flow equalizer is always required on distribution box outlets whenever the flow is being divided. If only one outlet of a distribution box is being used, a flow equalizer is not required. Our preference is that the Polylok® flow Equalizer® be used, which is claimed to maintain equal flow even when the distribution box shifts over time and becomes out-of-level. However, our manual does allow the use of other equivalent devices. When pumping to a distribution box the same rule would apply; if only one distribution box outlet is being used, no flow equalizer is required.
