Case Study 15 - Naramata Summer Cottage

Location - Lake Okanagan wetlands,BC.

Type of site - 3 bedroom summer cottage on a narrow lot, a well on one side, Lake Okanagan on another side, and a creek on the other side. A special location, but the existing dispersal system failed. The local certified practioneer was consulted, but was unable to help with a conventional system, the dispersal field would be too large to maintain the required 50 foot clearance from all water sources.

Design criteria - A full class 3 advanced treatment plant is required, requiring only a small dispersal field.

Solution - An 1100 gallon Go-Green system was installed, allowing for maximum summer useage of 5 people . The dispersal field is 30' long, with 6 inches of sand on top of 6 inches of existing top soil .

Installation - July 2005, with minimal disturbance to the unique, fragile eco-system
