An investigation was conducted to provide insight into the design and performance of large soil absorption systems for treatment and disposal of wastewaters from multiple-home developments. The objectives were to investigate absorption system performance and identify potential deficiencies in presently used design criteria. Where possible, recommendations regarding more appropriate design and operation practices were to be made. A survey of state regulatory agencies was conducted to enable characterization of the distribution, regulatory structures, design restrictions and state attitudes associated with multiple-home systems. An in-depth field investigation of the community wastewater absorption system at Westboro, Wisconsin was conducted between June 1981 and May 1983.
