Mississippi Sewage Treatment system
Does anyone know if there is a system similar to this that is legal to use in Mississippi for a camp?

LINK /

I know a few people use them in Louisiana,
thanks for looking

re: Mississippi Sewage Treatment system
I don't know if it's legal or not in Miss, but it looks like nothing more than an aerated septic tank.

That being said, call your local health department (or the health department in the area you're interested in) and ask to speak to the onsite septic tank specialist about them.

Call the county health department, they will tell you what you need.
Is this going in town, and will you need permits??

re: Mississippi Sewage Treatment system
this will be a rural area. Reading the specs on this unit it says

"Approved by the Louisiana Department of Public Health and Hospitals as defined in Chapter 13 of the Louisiana Sanitation Code as a Limited Use Sewage Treatment System"

I could not find one that said the same for Mississippi, that is why I was asking the question here. I thought someone would have went though this

thanks

I Would do it. If you call any official offices you are going to get a load of red tape and probably a different answer for every person you talk to. It says it’s approved. I would call it good.

Cost is $1,515.00 approved in Louisiana, but they will not state if approved in Mississippi.

I understand no one will care with it being rural, but from what I am finding out at this time.
Once I call for power and water this will be looked into. At this time just doing some research to figure out the best option.

If you can get water hooked up we have vastly different definitions of rural.

re: Mississippi Sewage Treatment system
Is there any reason you can't use a regular septic tank? To me, this looks like it's an "activated sludge system" designed to treat to a level where you can discharge to surface waters or where there isn't sufficient space to install as traditional septic tank and drain field. You may not need that level of technology.

I have a little bit of knowledge in the wastewater field. Very simplisticly, a passive system like a septic tank, is much prefered to an active system like this. For example, you have to supply power to it, and it has a pump which will require maintenance to make it run optimally.

As I said, simply call the local health department where you'd like to use this technology. They're the authority on what's legal or not, and can tell you if it can be approved.

IF your curious, I spent about 3 seconds on google and found the Mississippi onsite wastewater regs. Here they are

Furthermore, I looked on MIssissippi's State Dept of Health's Website and found the list of approved advanced onsite treatment systems. LINK

The particular model you posted does not appear on the approved list, but looks like there are lots of other systems on there.

Good luck

The two barrel septic tank with 50 ft of field line is hard to beat
