Abstract: The increasing need to provide adequate sewage disposal systems to meet housing needs of the future should include the evaluation and acceptance of alternative sewage disposal methods. Alternative methods, such as pressure and vacuum sewers, and home aerobic units for primary treatment and mounds and evapotranspiration beds for effluent disposal meet EPA's environmental standards as well as technical regulations. Each system is reviewed briefly, and diagrams are included.
