Rhizopods

RhizpodThe Rhizopod system is fundamentally an extension of a temporary containment system. All existing approval conditions as required under the Waste Control Systems Code for temporary containment systems including, high level audio/visual alarm, maintaining accessibility by tanker truck and a formal contract in place with an EPA licensed liquid waste contractor are required. Waste from the holding tank is recirculated through a series of concurrently dosed concrete Rhizopod structures with return drains connected back into the holding tank system. The configuration continues to serve as a holding tank system should the inflows exceed evapo-transpiration rates whereupon the high level alarm would eventually signal alerting for the need to decant holding tank. Mature vegetation canopies can significantly reduce the frequency of off-site disposal activity.
