SNARP LETTER 1ST ITEM HOMEOWNER RECEIVES AFTER SITE VISIT November 16, 2009   John Doe 1234 Clermont Lane Batavia, OH. 45103   Dear Mr. Doe I visited your property on 11/13/09 to develop some remediation options to correct your problem. The first step is to retrieve your water records; this gives me some idea of how much actual system you need to handle your current water needs and should make you aware of how much water the home is using and the importance of strict water conservation.  The water records show that from 9/08 to 9/09 the home averaged 298 gallons per day of water usage. The existing system was never designed to handle this much water. The water fixtures in the home should be checked for leaks and the laundry should be spread out over the entire week rather than several loads on one day. All remediation plans require me to develop a full replacement system for the property. A full replacement is generally the cheapest route in the long term, however if it is not feasible at this time I will try and give you other options to eliminate the sewage nuisance. Options less than a full replacement become more risky and may only offer short term solutions, it is important to keep a final system as your goal so that any equipment used in a lesser phase should be compatible with the final system so you’re not wasting your money. The Health Department uses several new systems I will use one as an example to give you an idea of how this process works. Option 1 Full 3 bedroom (216 gpd average flows 360 gpd peak flows) type G mound with pumped gradient drain and a 1500 gallon dosing septic tank (or equal). The mound would use Millennium style pump and panel, a new building sewer installed and the old septic tank pumped, crushed and filled in. Option 2 would be to repair the existing mound. Install a new watertight 1500 gallon dosing septic tank (or equal) with Millennium controls and pump. The existing mound would be uncovered and new clean filter sand would be installed (depth to be determined) with a 6’ by 50’ gravel distribution bed and a new lateral set of six 24’ laterals (see attached pump select). The gradient drain would need to be verified that the outlet is free flowing and working properly or repaired. Observation ports would need to be installed (4 total) and observation ports over all lateral cleanouts. The existing septic tank and dosing tank will need to be pumped, crushed and filled in. Option 3 would be the most risky option and would involve trying to update more of the existing equipment. A watertight septic and dosing tank is critical for any mound system to have a chance to work. If you would choose to use the existing tanks they will need to be checked and risers installed to make sure these tanks will not be a detriment to the system. A new watertight junction box and float tree will need to be installed in the dose tank. The existing pump could be used if it can provide a 48 inch squirt height. The pump will need to be controlled by a Millennium style panel an effluent filter will need to be installed in the septic tank. An ABG device will need to be installed either in the septic (if the access hole is large enough) or in the dosing tank. The ends of the laterals on the mound will need to be uncovered and lateral cleanouts will need to be installed. Observation ports large enough to allow for future service will be installed around them. Observation ports will be installed to the basal area in 4 locations. The gradient drain would need to be verified that the outlet is free flowing and working properly or repaired.  All 3 of these options will require an electrical inspection with the Building Department. The Health Department allows me 15 days from my site visit on 11/13/09 to develop a plan then allows you 30 days to shop the plan with installers, you must have a plan under permit by 12/30/09 to avoid further re inspections. Call when you have chosen a plan so I can complete the permit or if you have any questions.   Sincerely,      Tom Racke 513-732-7184
