Subsurface Irrigation. Whether you are considering a
graywater system or a wastewater reclamation system, subsurface
might be the best solution. By watering subsurface, many of the
health restrictions concerning human contact can be avoided.
With subsurface irrigation coliform and bacteria levels may not
be as critical as for surface applied waters, however, total
suspended solids does become critical. (Refer to EPA/625/R-92/004
"Guidelines for Water Reuse.") The emitters used with subsurface
systems will require more frequent cleaning if the water used
contains large amounts of dissolved solids.
