- Site: Emory Pointe Subdivision
- Location: Kingston, Tennessee
In 2002, development began on a 63-lot subdivision along the banks of the Watts Barr Lake in East Tennessee. Due to very poor soil conditions along the lake, the developers were faced with losing many of their best lots because the ground was not suitable for onsite wastewater disposal. To overcome these site limitations the developers opted to install a decentralized wastewater system that maximized their land usage while providing the future homeowners with a managed onsite system through IRM Utility of Baneberry, TN.
Construction of the decentralized treatment and disposal system began in early 2004 by Aquatics Resources, Inc utilizing a complete Quanics system. A cluster of 21 SCAT BioFilter units will treat the anticipated 23,000 gpd flow. Each unit utilizes an open cell foam media to produce secondary quality effluent. Final disposal occurs through the use of drip irrigation installed in a reserved 4-acre section of the subdivision. Each home will include a Quanics STEP Package to lift the effluent through a small diameter sewer to the treatment and disposal area.
By combining great products, a great installation and continued oversight through a utility, the future residents of Emory Point will be assured years of trouble free service from their onsite wastewater disposal system.
