6.0 Evapotranspiration System- The Non-infiltration,
Evapotranspiration Bed Contained Within a Greenhouse
This technology consists of low flow plumbing fixtures inside the home, an aerobic treatment tank,and specially modified passive solar greenhouse beds where the wastewater is eliminated through the process of evapotranspiration. These systems are used where permeability and site limitations (shallow mottling, excessive slopes) negate the use of other soil-based absorption systems. The minimum requirements are as follows:
A. Design and installation must follow the manufacturer’s specifications.
B. The bed must be contained in an enclosed, walled structure (usually cinder blocks) and insulated on the exterior to avoid contact with frozen ground. The bed must be lined to retainall effluent and avoid infiltration with the underlying soil.
C The bed must be sectionalized with a series of valves that control effluent flow to each sectionproportional to the evapotranspiration potential of the season.
D. Temperature controls and humidity exchangers must be used to maintain the proper internalenvironment necessary to reach optimal evapotranspiration potential.
E. The system must comply with Sections 73.72(d)(3) and 73.72(e) as part of the applicationprocess.
F. These systems require regularly scheduled maintenance and monitoring to insure the long-termreliability of their performance. The SEO should include all operation and maintenance requirements on the permit application. It is the responsibility of the SEO to ensure that all components of the systems have been installed in compliance with the above conditions.
