SUBSURFACE DISPOSAL NOT RECOMMENDED

 

NOTES:

 

1 Limiting layers include fragipans; bedrock; compact glacial tills; seasonal high water table or other soil profile features that will materially affect the absorption of liquid from the disposal field.

 

2 Soils in this group are less than the minimum percolation rate established in Appendix A, Illustration H as suitable for subsurface seepage systems.

 

3 NR = Subsurface disposal system not recommended.

SOIL PROPERTIES HAVE VERY SEVERE LIMITATIONS; SUBSURFACE DISPOSAL NOT RECOMMENDED

 

FOOTNOTES:

 

1 Disturbed soils are highly variable and require special on-site investigations.

2 Moderate or strong platy structure for the soil textures in Groups 4, 5 and 6 have a loading rate of 0.40 g/sq.ft/d. Platy structure having firm or very firm consistency or caused by mechanical compaction has a loading rate of 0.0 g/sq.ft/d.

3 Basal glacial tills structured by geogenic processes have the same loading rates as structureless glacial till.

4 This soil group is estimated to have very rapid permeability and exceeds the maximum established rate in Illustration H, Exhibit A.

5 N/A means not applicable.

6 These soil groups are estimated to have moderately slow to very slow permeability and are less than the minimum established rate in Illustration H, Exhibit A.

7 N/R means not recommended. These soils have loading rates considered too low for conventional subsurface disposal.

8 In some areas, lacustrine material may have physical properties similar to glacial till and should be placed in the glacial till columns.

9 Non-swelling (1:1 lattice) clays formed in bedrock residuum have a loading rate of 0.27 g/sq.ft/d. Swelling (2:1 lattice) clays are not recommended for subsurface disposal.
