The TGM is a web-based reference document used by builders and on-site wastewater system
installers to select, design, and install subsurface sewage disposal systems to meet state requirements and by DEQ and public health districts to evaluate the site, proposed design, and construction of subsurface sewage disposal systems.
Business Challenge: The Beaufort County Environmental Health office handles a considerable volume of sanitation inspections of food and lodging facilities as well as numerous evaluations of properties for suitability for an on-site wastewater system
. Although workload was being handled as quickly and efficiently as possible, they were searching for new ways to streamline their inspection and permitting processes, organize existing paper files that were taking up large amounts of space within the office, and the ability to search these files more efficiently.

A conventional on-site wastewater system
typically consists of a septic tank followed by a distribution box and soil absorption field.
The authors discuss nitrogen removal in lagoons, on-site wastewater systems
, sludge freezing, pond effluent upgrading, soil aquifer treatment systems, subsurface flow constructed wetlands, and vertical flow wetlands.
I think many regulators just honestly don't understand the science of on-site wastewater systems
; they're taking the word of "experts." Also, in many states, county health regulators are forced into unrealistic requirements by state agencies--in California, by the State Water Resources Control Board.
Providing on-site wastewater systems
for small cities, community developments and individual homes, Brian Corbitt, Andy Davis and Andrew Rike are keeping the traditions of New Water Systems PLLC, while adding full service to their water-treatment package.
Maybe the experts can help businesses with large, on-site wastewater systems
to find new technologies that release less nitrates to the groundwater."
Recent work using 'biomarkers' as a method of distinguishing human faecal contamination from that of other animals is gaining impetus as a useful tool for assessing water quality impacts to catchment water quality, particularly from diffuse sources such as on-site wastewater systems
and agricultural land use (Apte and Bately 1992; Leeming 1998; Geary and Davies 2004).

Within CPM's framework, operation and maintenance activities can be controlled on a continuous basis to improve performance and confidence in on-site wastewater systems
Meanwhile, Sutherlin-based Orenco Systems, which uses new technology to design and manufacture on-site wastewater systems
, recently expanded to bring its payroll to nearly 300 workers, supplanting Murphy as the city's largest employer.
