Abstract The research was to investigate the feasibility of a septic disposal system with an underground distribution system as a means of eliminating runoff from swine feeding floors into the surface waters. Installation provided for hydraulic cleaning of the feeding floor. Manure, water and uneaten feed was washed into gutters, one on each side of the house. It was soon evident that the large tank intended to serve as a septic tank was inadequate and performed primarily as a sedimentation tank. Data taken showed this tank was satisfactory for accumulating solid wastes for a period of about 5 weeks. Solids were removed by mechanical means. Tests on the tile distribution system showed that the capacity to dispose of the liquid effluent was more than needed. Proper operation should provide a satisfactory means of disposing of the liquid portion of the wastes without polluting the nearby river. (Author)
