GeoMat Leaching Systems – High Performance, Low Profile, Wastewater Infiltration and Reuse System
To give you another septic system design option, Foster Survey Company is now trained to design GeoMat Leaching Septic Systems. Eric D. Colburn PLS, received training from Geomatrix Systems on the design and installation of their high performance, low profile, wastewater infiltration and reuse septic systems.
The GeoMat Leaching System, a low profile modular gravelless absorption system, similar to the Pressurized Shallow Narrow Drainfields (PSND) now used in Rhode Island, is another approved Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) septic system option we can design for your property. In addition to being trained to design GeoMat Leaching Systems, Eric D. Colburn, PLS is a RIDEM Licensed Class II Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS) septic system designer and RIDEM Certified Bottomless Sand Filter (BSF) designer.
About GeoMat Leaching System
GeoMat™has a thin profile that maximizes contact with the soil – which enhances oxygen transfer, and increases plant uptake and retention of nutrients.
- Easy and fast to install
- Minimizes the height of mounds
- Helps polish pretreated wastewater
- Laterals and orifices are adjustable and serviceable
The GeoMat Leaching System (GLS) is comprised of a core of fused, entangled plastic filaments with a geotextile fabric bonded to one side. A pressure distribution line is installed on top of the core and covered with another layer of geotextile fabric. GLS is designed for maximum treatment and infiltration of wastewater into soil, in certain instances it is used for subsurface irrigation. GLS can be utilized with pretreated wastewater or septic tank effluent, if Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) is accounted for.Source: Geomatrix Systems
While the GeoMat Leaching System can benefit any site, the GeoMat Flat is also well suited for difficult sites, like when depth is limited by ledge, water table, or impermeable soils.
The GeoMat Leaching System (GLS) has many similar benefits to drip irrigation, but it is significantly less mechanically complex and provides for massive surface area when compared to drip emitters. GLS also shares some similarities to low pressure pipe systems; however, it is significantly easier to install and has a much lower profile. The distal head pressure of the GLS is fully adjustable through valving on the distribution manifold, which is often located in the pump station. A cleanout/distal pressure monitoring port is installed on the terminal end of each of the lateral lines. The lateral lines can be readily cleaned, flushed and jetted
