Case Study: Low Pressure Distribution System Replaces Failing Septic

Thursday, July 16, 2015

Problem:  In 2009, Prospect Mountain Campground in Granville, Massachusetts, wanted to expand and repair its existing conventional septic system.  The original system was broken into four separate fields with two zones failing and the other two located within 100 feet of public water wells.  There was limited space for a new system to handle the 10,000 gpd design flow and meet the mandatory advanced treatment requirements.

Solution:  A low-pressure distribution Eljen GSF Treatment System was chosen for the job.  It treats wastewater to NSF Standard 40 requirements and needs little to no maintenance.  The 10,000 gpd system was separated into three zones alternately dosed throughout the day.  The system was design by T. Reynolds Engineering of Whately, Massachusetts, and installed by Geeleher Enterprises of South Hampton, Massachusetts.

Result:  The system allowed the campground to expand and replace the existing failing system, while fitting into the limited space available.  The system was installed in 2010, allowing the campground to provide their customers expanded services and features.
