CPOW Guidelines for the Design and Installation of Non-Pressurized Drip Dispersal Systems (NDDS)

Revision: September 2016

Click here for the latest revision of the document.

The NDDS system is recognized as a type of an Evapotranspiration/Absorption system and is therefore accepted as a proper means of effluent dispersal as long as the CPOW design document is followed. Further note that the September 2016 CPOW NDDS document will be referenced in the proposed revisions to Regulation 43 as a type of an Evapotranspiration/Absorption system. Therefore, all future designs which propose an NDDS as a means of effluent dispersal must be designed in accordance with this updated document.
