    Conventional Onsite Sewage disposal system

    DESIGN SUBMITTAL

     This gives you some information that will be requested on the sketch and the design submittal. It is not a substitute for knowing the code. There are supplemental checklists for

    other system types

A. Sketch reminders on items to note

    1. Property boundaries and dimensions - Recommend a plat

    2. Boring Locations

    3. Slope

    4. Footprint of all existing or proposed structures including driveways

    5. Compass directions (at least North)

    6. Well location including any neighbors

    a. Federal loans like 100 feet separation

    b. Compression fittings on sewer pipe within 50 feet of well

    i. If this situation occurs make a special note of pipe and all it numbers.

    7. Sketch of the system including a cross section or use extra sheet for x-section

    a) You need to go to the lot and be sure it will fit and check elevations

    b) You will need to show details of the system on the sketch,

    8. Elevations (laser or transit almost a must)

    ; Elevations (at least) four corners for system 18 inches or less in depth and

    non-traditional systems including drainage

    ; Elevations recommended on all systems

    9. Drainage characteristics- tiles, swells, areas that concentrate water, bodies of water.

    10. Jetted tubs of 125 gallons or more?

    11. Fall in the pipe should be noted

    12. Will there be a sump pump, roof drains? Should not be hooked into the septic If

    needed a basement laundry is to be hooked into the septic with its separate sump

    13. Will there be a garbage disposal? Not recommended.

B. Piping - code uses ASTM # it is:

    1. Solid Pipe ASTM #

    a) (PVC) D 2665 D 3034 F 891

    b) (ABS) D 2661 D 2680 D 2751

    c) Pressure Sewer * D 2241 - 89 1785- 89 1527 - 89 2282- 89

    d) 0r waterworks grade ductile iron pipe * (*compression fittings)

    2. Absorption field pipe (perforated)

    a) PVC ASTM D 2729 -89 ABS ASTM F 810 -89

    i. Joints to be glued or other secure connection

    ii. Holes to be 120 degrees apart either two or 3

    iii. Pipe is to placed with holes at 4 and 8 o’clock position

    b) Chamber system experimental at reduced sizing

    c) Stoneless pipe ASTM F667
