2 has been little done to assign possible design values for hydraulic linear loading rate; however, limits have been put on infiltration width in an attempt to limit the hydraulic linear loading rate. Therefore, a procedure to estimate values for hydraulic linear loading rates based on soil characteristics is needed. Since wasterwater infiltration rates are also based on soil characteristics the procedure should include wastewater infiltration rates and present the two design values together. OBJECTIVES 1. Define wastewater infiltration into soil and water flow away from wastewater infiltration systems and 2. Present a procedure to estimate wastewater infiltration and hydraulic linear loading rates based on soil characteristics assuming a wastewater quality and volume. WASTEWATER LOADING RATES Wastewater movement into and through the soil depends on the interaction of the wastewater with the soil to create a clogging layer and on the hydraulic properties of the soil. Each type of flow is defined separately and the limiting flow is used for design. Infiltration Loading Rates Wastewater infiltration or loading rates define the rate wastewater enters the soil. When applying septic tank effluent, a clogging layer forms at the infiltrative surface. Clogging layers impede water infiltration and reduce the loading applied to far below the maximum infiltration rate of unclogged soil. Bouma (1975) explained the basis of wastewater infiltration into clogged soil. Since the water that passes the clogging layer also percolates through the soil then: Qc = Qs = K ( Ho + Ψ + c c z zc) where Q c is the flow through the clogging layer, Q s is the wastewater flow through the soil, K c is the hydraulic conductivity of the clogging layer, H o is the wastewater ponding height above the infiltrative surface, Ψ is the soil moisture potential in the soil just outside the clogging layer and z c is the thickness of the clogging layer. Wastewater infiltration into soil is dependent on the character of both the clogging and soil. Since soil is a factor in infiltration rate through a clogging layer, wastewater loading rates will vary from soil-to-soil with the same clogging. The differences in wastewater infiltration rates are related to soil characteristics defining pore sizes and pore size distribution. Texture, structure, and consistence each contribute information about soil pores. Also, the mineralogy of the clay fraction is important. Of the soil characteristics soil structure provides the most information. Therefore, commonly

6 Table 1. Infiltration rates in gal/d/ft 2 for wastewater of >30 mg L -1 or wastewater of <30 mg L -1 and hydraulic linear loading rates in gal/d/ft for soil characteristics of texture and structure and site conditions of slope and infiltration distance. Values assume wastewater volume of >150 gal/d/bedroom. If horizon consistence is stronger than firm or any cemented class or the clay mineralogy is smectitic, the horizon is limiting regardless of other soil characteristics. { 2000 by E.

7 CONCLUSIONS The principals of water movement through wastewater infiltration system clogging layers and saturated horizontal flow away from the zone of infiltration can be used to explain the flow of domestic wastewater into and through soil. However, application of principals does not provide working values for design of onsite wastewater treatment systems. Design hydraulic loading rate estimates based on logic and experience for domestic wastewater applications derived from field described soil and site characteristics are in a single table for use by onsite wastewater specialists.
