Michigan Lakeside Site
The system passively treats and disposes of effluent in the same footprint.
Problem: A homeowner’s existing system on Bear Lake in Michigan was showing the initial signs of failure. Due to the proximity of the lake and site constraints, a compact treatment
system was required.
Solution: Erin Parker, an engineer from Parker Engineering in Lake Ann, Mich., specified the GSF system from Eljen Corporation. The system passively treats and disposes of effluent
in the same footprint. In this case, a lift pump to gravity distribution was required to achieve the desired drainfield location.
Result: The installation on the slope was permitted by the District No. 10 HD, supplied by Harbor Pipe and Supply Co., and installed by Belanger’s Excavating. The installation went quickly, allowing the family to get back to enjoying Bear lake.
