Goal: This team revisited requirements for performing site evaluation for infiltration, siting an infiltration device, selecting infiltration rates, and preparing a site evaluation report.
The team addressed the following:
– Ensure effective groundwater protection, with appropriate considerations for karst topography
– Ensure designs are sustainable
– Improve the quality of information collected on site
– Improve the legibility and clarity of the document, thus ensuring its accurate use in the field
– Include updated research and experience gained from implementing the standard
– Examine a decompaction option
