Description

This Standard specifies requirements for on-site domestic wastewater systems including both primary and secondary wastewater treatment units and associated land-application systems. The Standard gives specific details for septic tanks for domestic all-waste, blackwater and greywater; and specific details for land-application and absorption systems, including conventional trenches and beds, evapo-transpiration systems, mounds and irrigation areas.

Scope

The on-site domestic-wastewater systems covered by this Standard include both primary and secondary wastewater-treatment units and associated land-application systems.

The Standard gives specific details for septic tanks for domestic all-waste, blackwater and greywater; and specific details for land-application and absorption systems, including conventional trenches and beds, evapotranspiration systems, mounds and irrigation areas. These are regarded as the current most commonly used systems and are used as examples throughout the Standard.

The systems covered in this Standard are designed for wastewater flows up to a maximum of 14 000 L/ week, from a population equivalent of up to 10 persons.

This Standard covers the subsurface land-application of greywater after primary treatment. It does not cover the direct application of greywater onto land for reuse purposes, nor does it provide details of greywater-diversion systems.
