Nutrient Pathogen Studies

MTI conducts these studies in accordance with guidelines presented within the Nutrient-Pathogen Evaluation Program for On-Site Wastewater Treatment Systems dated 6 May 2002. These studies assess possible effects of proposed wastewater management systems for developments. Completion of these studies will indicate the acceptable number of lots for proposed developments. Many local health departments require a minimum of a Level 1 nutrient pathogen study for subdivisions involving 5 or more lots as well as commercial facilities generating 600 or more gallons of wastewater per day. Completion of a level 1 nutrient pathogen study may indicate requirement of a Level 2 Nutrient Pathogen study. These require additional work to further assess the local groundwater regimen.
