Draft Guidance Document for Design of Large-Scale On-Site Wastewater Renovation Systems
The Guidance Document for Design of Large-Scale On-Site Wastewater Renovation Systems (OWRS) is intended to provide information and methodologies for the design, construction, operation and maintenance for those wastewater renovation systems which are under the Department’s regulatory authority. This includes OWRS at:
- Sites where the design flow is greater than 5,000 gallons per day, which may include multiple smaller systems.
- Sites utilizing alternative treatment system.
- Sites utilizing community sewerage systems.
- CD’s containing the entire guidance document can be purchased from the DEEP Store located on the Store Level, 79 Elm Street, Hartford, CT 06106.
- The guidance document is available for download below.
- Hardcopies of the guidance document are not available.
