Case Study: BC Lakefront Sites
Residential systems installed simultaneously on lakefront sites in British Columbia
Problem: A pair of homeowners sharing lot lines on small lakefront sites on Christina Lake in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada, wanted to repair their aging septic systems at the same time to minimize system cost and site damage. They were looking for a high-performance, low-maintenance treatmean system that would fit within the limited site constraints while exceeding treatment standards.
Solution: The Eljen GSF system was chosen for its treatment performance (NSF Standard 40) and zero biological startup period. Two, three-bedroom systems were designed by BWD Engineering and installed easily and simultaneously by Boundary Waste Water Systems & Excavating, limiting site disturbance and keeping costs affordable.
Result: The new systems gave the homeowners the treatment and performance they needed in the limited available space. The systems were installed in 2014 and have continued to perform as expected.
