Abstract: A simplified and improved design scheme for subsurface soil absorption systems is presented. The scheme involves intermittent dosing of a cavity with a storage volume equal to the expected weekly water use in a three-bedroom home, and is based on results obtained from laboratory studies. Economics and system life are used to compare the scheme to conventional design. The scheme is economically competitive with conventional design and offers extended system life. The risks associated with the scheme are described and evaluated.
