Engineering a Wastewater Solution to Serve 250 Workers

A new Indiana RV factory with serious flow requirements called for Aerobic Bacterial Generators, large tanks and a significant drainfield area

An RV manufacturer needed an approved onsite design before constructing a new factory in Middlebury, Indiana. The architect and engineering firm hired Stuart Meade, owner of Meade Septic Design in nearby Goshen, for the project.

Based on 250 employees, the state Department of Health estimated a design flow of 5,500 gpd. Meade’s challenge was to design a system that maximized the undisturbed 22-acre lot for storing chassis, finished RVs and supplies.

Michigan’s Dig-It Excavating Lobbies to Get a Lakefront Homeowner off the Holding Tank

Tiny cottage lot with impossible setback issues spurs a training day featuring an aerobic treatment solution

The job site near Paw Paw, Michigan needed a different approach because of its proximity to the lakeshore and to a neighboring property. A SludgeHammer unit combined with Geoflow dripfield solved the problem.

After three months of operation the system was producing effluent with:

  • BOD of 9 mg/L (NSF-40 reduction standard is 25 mg/L or less). 
  • TSS of 26 mg/L (NSF is 30 mg/L or less).
  • Total inorganic nitrogen of 3.04 mg/L (NSF is 30 mg/L or less)

The results were great but not unexpected because other SludgeHammer systems show similar results, Dervin Witmer, owner of Dig-It Excavating, says.

The health department sanitarian was quite right in saying that a lot of contaminants are going into the lake, says Witmer. “If we would encourage alternative technologies like this, that have very clean effluent, you’re only going to come up with cleaner lakes as a result.”
