      Approximately 18 million housing units, or 25% of all housing units in the United States, dispose of their wastewater using onsite wastewater treatment and disposal systems. These systems include a variety of components and configurations, the most common being the septic tank/soil absorption system. The number of onsite systems is increasing, with about one . of on-site wastewater treatment systems. It is the intent of these standards to ensure that wastewater entering on-site systems receives adequate treatment. These standards are not intended to cover systems treating industrial waste or other wastewater that may contain hazardous materials.

    Within the City of Los Angeles there are clusters of unsewered properties that dispose of their wastewater by means of onsite wastewater treatment systems (OWTS, also known as septic systems). Throughout the City, there are approximat residential, multi-family, and commercial / industrial properties served by OWTS.

Cashell, David D. Effert, and James M. Morand Several research and. Several research and evaluation studies were performed on alternative onsite systems on sites with severe limitations for conventional systems.

The major limitations included slow permeability, a seasonally high water table, and limiting soil horizons. Several typical site evaluation techniques were also evaluated, and groundwater contamination was investigated.
