1504.3 Determination of Maximum Absorption Capacity
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
The irrigation field and mulch basin size shall be based on the maximum absorption capacity of the soil and determined using Table 1504.2. For soils not listed in Table 1504.2, the maximum absorption capacity for the proposed site shall be determined by percolation tests or another method acceptable to the Authority Having Jurisdiction. A gray water system shall not be permitted, where the percolation test shows the absorption capacity of the soil is unable to accommodate the maximum discharge of the proposed gray water irrigation system.
