					   AWPS Program Elements

 New   Approval/Management Process
 – NSF-40 Systems
 – Systems Achieving Higher Standards
 Comprehensive   AWPS Rule
 – Influent and Effluent Performance
   Standards
 – Uniform Drainfield Siting and Sizing
 – Generic Design, Installation and O+M
 – Criteria for Site/System Compliance
    Design Criteria, NSF-40,
    TS-I and TS-II Systems


 See RWTS, Experimental, Controlled
  Demonstration, Innovative or Accepted
  System Approval
 Provisions to Sample Influent and
  Effluent While the System is Operational
 Flow Monitoring Method
    – To Measure and and Record Daily
      Wastewater Flows
    – Means to determine past 30 days of Flow
Installation Criteria, NSF-40,
  TS-I and TS-II Systems


 See RWTS, Experimental,
  Controlled Demonstration,
  Innovative or Accepted System
  Approval
 Manufacturer-Authorized Installer
  Required
 See Authorization to Construct
  Operation and Maintenance
 NSF-40, TS-I and TS-II Systems

 Post7/1/06: Manufacturer Shall
 Provide for O+M
  – Provide Renewable Contracts, Min. 1-year
 Pre 7/1/06: Optional renewable year
  contracts
 OPs after 7/1/06: Owner Shall Provide
  Contract:
  – With Manufacturer/Manufacturer’s
     System Performance
 NSF-40, TS-I and TS-II Systems
 Annual Visual Inspection
  per Manufacture’s Procedure
 7-day and 30-day wastewater flow
 Influent/Effluent Sampling
    – Quarterly for Controlled Demonstration
    – Annually for RWTS/Innovative for all parameters
       May   reduce by 50 percent after 2 years for TS-I and TS-
       II
    – Semi-annually for systems >1500-3000 gpd
   No Routine Sampling after Accepted Status
    Granted
     Site Compliance Criteria

 Passes Annual Visual Inspection (VIP)
 Flow Criteria
  o 7-day flow ≤ 1.3 x design daily flow, and
  o 30-day flow ≤ design daily flow
 Influent   Wastewater Below Threshold
  (grab)
 Effluent Sample Criteria (grab sample)
  o No parameter value > 2 x standard (fecal
    2.5 x)
  System Compliance Criteria


 Meanof All Data ≤ Designated
 Standard
≤ 20 Percent of Sites Exceed
 Standard for one or more
 parameters
≤ 10 Percent of Sites Exceed 2 x
 Standard (fecal 2.5 x) for one or
 more parameters
