K. Reserve areas: 1) For lots with an onsite sewage disposal system, including residue parcels, proposed in a designated service district, a separate reserve area that meets all the requirements of this article and equals, or is equivalent to, 100 percent of the primary absorption area shall be provided. 2) For lots with an onsite sewage disposal system, including residue parcels, proposed outside of a designated service district, a separate reserve area that meets all the requirements of this article and equals, or is equivalent to, 200 percent of the primary absorption area shall be provided. L. All alternative individual septic systems using pumps must have the system designed with either all time dosing pumps or all duplex pumps. The pump system shall be designed with minimum storage capacity to contain a volume equal to the number of bedrooms times a daily usage of one hundred fifty (150) gallons per day per bedroom for a period of two (2) days (4 bedrooms x 150 gals/day/bedroom x 2 days = 1200 gals). 2. Individual Lots: For the purpose of this chapter, evaluation of proposed individual lots or parcels shall be based on the following: A.

Effluent filters are required for septic tanks that are a component of a conventional septic system. 3. Distribution box installation: The distribution box shall be stabilized by bonding to a poured-in-place concrete pad and shall be equipped with speed levelers. 4. Header lines: All header lines shall be constructed of pressure rated schedule 40 PVC pipe Sec. 17-9.

A private individual sewage treatment system which discharges into an open ditch or water shall be allowed only to replace an existing sewage system which is presently serving an existing use. That existing sewage system must have failed and have been certified by the Virginia Department of Health to pose a real or potential health threat and a discharging system is the only alternative for the repair. The discharge system must comply with all applicable state regulations and receive all applicable state permits prior to installation and/or operation. In approving such a system, the Board may establish additional conditions, including but not limited to use, maintenance and testing. Sec. 17-10. Inspections. 1. Required inspections. The Health Director shall make such inspections as deemed necessary during construction of sewage treatment and disposal systems to determine compliance with the requirements of this chapter. 2.
