Advanced Onsite Wastewater Systems Technologies
Anish R. Jantrania and Mark A. Gross (2006)
Drawing on the authors' combined experience of more than 30 years, Advanced Onsite Wastewater Systems Technologies explores the use of advanced technologies on a wide-scale basis to solve the problems associated with conventional septic-tank and drainfield systems. The book discusses a regulatory and management infrastructure for ensuring long-term, reliable applications of onsite systems for wastewater management. It provides an overview of advanced onsite technologies and compares them with conventional onsite systems and centralized wastewater systems. Key concepts for decentralized wastewater solutions are presented, as is information on advanced onsite wastewater treatment and effluent dispersal technologies currently available. The book delineates a management, regulatory, and planning framework for use of advanced onsite systems technologies as alternatives to conventional septic systems and centralized collection and treatment plants. It concludes with an exploration of the future of advanced onsite systems technologies and their uses.
Serving as a toolbox for service, professionals, regulators, and community planners, the book highlights objective methods of assessing the performance of technologies and gives examples of real-world applications. The authors detail a solution-driven and performance-based regulatory framework for the use of advanced onsite systems as a true alternative to centralized collection and treatment plants, and offer guidance on how to plan for future growth with such systems.
