Frequently Asked Questions about Subsurface Drip Septic Systems.

Q: What is a Subsurface Drip Septic System?

A: A Subsurface drip system (SDS) is an efficient pressurized wastewater distribution system that can deliver small, precise doses of effluent to shallow Subsurface dispersal/reuse fields. SDS distribution piping is small diameter, flexible polyethylene tubing (dripline) with small in-line emitters (orifices that can discharge effluent at slow, controlled rates, usually specified in gallons per hour). Dripline can be trenched (by hand or with a trenching machine) into narrow, shallow trenches or plowed (with vibrating plow or other insertion tool) directly into the soil and backfilled without gravel or geotextile. Typical installation depth is between 6 and 10 inches.
