The NAWT OWTS Designer Training Course has been developed in response to requests for a design class from counties across the United States. This is a principles based design class, not a regulations based class. The class presents sound, science based principles of design, which are applicable in health jurisdictions throughout the country. It is the responsibility of the designer to understand the local health jurisdiction regulations, and properly apply the principles taught in the class. The class will cover the full range of tasks associated with the design of an OWTS, including evaluation of existing documentation, site evaluation, subsurface investigation, soils review segment, creating sound design documents and the principles of design for gravity systems, pumped systems, mound systems and non-pressurized drip dispersal systems, formerly called Colorado Low Pressure Drip. Attendees will learn about OWTS principles of operation, tanks, piping, pumps and system access.
Examples from the new Colorado Regulation 43 will be provided to illustrate how the local regulations have changed.
