Content: This workshop will cover the installation of a sand filter. Single-pass sand filters are an effective way to treat wastewater in an onsite application. The sand filter system has been used for more than 30 years across the U.S. and there is significant design, treatment, and maintenance experience with these systems. Sand filter systems are very reliable in treatment of BOD, TSS, and fecal coliform. The system protects the final soil treatment area because failure will occur in the sand filter before the soil treatment system is significantly affected. Single-pass sand filters require more area that recirculating filters and are not a good choice for small lots.
The workshop will be held outdoors so social distancing is possible. Face masks are not required however will be available (or provide your own).
