Alternative Wastewater Collection Systems - Low Pressure and Small Diameter Gravity Sewers
In Alternative Wastewater Collection Systems - Low Pressure and Small Diameter Gravity Sewers, you'll learn ...
- The advantages and disadvantages of alternative wastewater collection systems
- Design criteria and performance considerations for pressure sewers and small diameter gravity sewers
- Operation and maintenance requirements for common alternative systems of wastewater collection
This course includes guidance and considerations on the selection of alternative wastewater collection systems for suburban, rural, and semi-rural settings and development areas where the use of conventional gravity sewers could prove to be prohibitively expensive.
In the course material, the reader will review the most common types of alternative collection systems, including those used in combination with grinder pump systems and septic tank effluent pumps, as well as the small diameter gravity sewer systems without pumps. The course includes a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each system, and information on general design parameters, performance data, and cost data.
