Abstract:

A 6-ft diam flooding infiltration test was conducted at a proposed wastewater land treatment site near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The standard infiltration rate of the soil was 0.13 in.hr, and the reaeration rate of the saturated soil was equivalent to 1.35 in. of water after six days. A conservative wastewater application rate at this site would be between 1 and 2 in.wk.
