Depending on state rules, the LandSaver® MBR can often be installed where leach and mounds cannot. This is because it fully treats your wastewater before dispersing it onto your property.
Often, soil and land configuration is not conducive to the installation of leach fields. The LandSaver MBR overcomes many conditions that make it difficult to develop property, such as:
- Disturbed soils
- Shallow water tables
- Poor draining soils, such as clay
- Rocky ground or very sandy soil
- Uneven topography
- Small lot sizes
- Sensitive habitats
- Land otherwise considered undevelopable
How Much Land Is Needed for Sewage Treatment?
The amount of property that needs to be set aside for home sewage treatment varies with soil type, topography, sub-surface water levels, and the type of treatment you choose. As a rule of thumb, you should set aside at least two acres for dispersal areas for untreated sewage and about half to a third of that for partially or full treating systems. If your state allows spray dispersal, select a treatment system that can discharge into unrestricted access sites. This increases flexibility in where to disperse and can prevent digging up landscaping and trees. It may even be possible to spray disperse on previously disturbed soil areas in your yard.
The LandSaver® MBR Advantage
The LandSaver MBR, when paired with a quality spray system, almost always allows for a more desirable dispersal area placement that eliminates extensive digging and tree removal, and allows for less permanently dedicated area.
The LandSaver MBR replaces the need for unsightly mounds, costly drip systems, and extensive leach fields. When paired with a spray dispersal system, installation costs, such as trenching, leach field piping, and imported special sand, are eliminated. Much more flexibility and greater aesthetics in landscape design become possible. This type of system can also can be installed during winter months.
A spray system works like a sophisticated sprinkler system. Wastewater is collected and treated during the day and discharged at night by spraying onto a controlled area. Specially designed non-freezing spray devices are available that will not clog when matched with a treatment system like the LandSaver MBR that incorporates filtration.
