Validation of an Onsite Wastewater Risk Assessment Model
The purpose of this study was to validate a risk assessment model for decentralized wastewater systems. Through a field investigation of septic systems around the City of Ottawa, parameters such as lot size, soil type, depth to groundwater, proximity to surface water, and system age, were compared against system failure. Results from these field studies suggest that both soil type and system age are strong indicators of hydraulic failure.
