Chapter 790. Sewage Collection and Treatment Regulations

9VAC25-790-870. Conventional alternatives.

Article 9
Natural Treatment

A conventional land treatment system utilizes a secondary process for pretreatment of sewage followed by irrigation, overland flow, or infiltration-percolation (or combination thereof) methods for applying the treated effluent to an approved site. Other natural treatment alternatives such as aquatic ponds and constructed wetlands may provide conventional sewage treatment. Reuse of treated effluents that meet the quality standards established by the DEQ for the reclamation and reuse of wastewater will be governed by DEQ permitting programs. However, the sewage treatment process that produces the reclaimed water will remain subject to evaluation by the department as prescribed by this chapter.
