Engineered to uniformly apply treated
effluent below the surface of the ground, drip distribution relies
on proven techniques originally developed for agricultural
irrigation. This method of pressure distribution is well
suited for all conditions, as effluent is delivered directly to the
infiltrative surface of the soil using specially manufactured
polyethylene tubing with built-in turbulent flow emitters.
Drip disposal technology is emerging as one of the most versatile,
safe and reliable methods of wastewater disposal.
Now even properties with marginal
soils can be utilized by taking advantage of gradual soil
absorption, nutrient uptake by vegetation and evapotranspiration. Drip disposal fields are adaptable to irregularly shaped lots or
difficult site constraints. The unique drip emitter tubing is
installed in shallow, narrow excavations using a trenching machine
or vibratory plow so that existing trees and vegetation are not
disturbed. The shallow depth at which the tubing is installed
uses more of the soil for treatment; while the precise
manner in which effluent is distributed allows land that
would otherwise not be suitable to be developed.
Norweco drip disposal equipment is
designed, manufactured and tested to provide the most effective
performance for domestic wastewater applications and deliver years
of trouble-free service. Headwork assemblies, disc filters,
valves, pumps, integrated system controls, drip tubing, fittings and
enclosures are all warranted against defects in material and
workmanship for a period of two years from the date of purchase.
Local, licensed Norweco distributors and their sponsored
service providers are available to make sure every Norweco
subsurface drip disposal system operates at peak efficiency.
