Chamber approved by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality for use in septic leach field applications
Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS) Arc 18 Septic Leaching Chamber has been approved by the State of Oregon Department of Environmental Quality for use in septic leach field applications.
“The Arc 18 is part of the trend we’re seeing throughout the United States for adaptive code changes by municipalities and states to authorize new technology to replace older, more labor intensive materials in a septic leach field application,” said Jim Clemans, director of Allied Products, ADS. “We’re finding great acceptance of the Arc line in both new on-site residential and commercial wastewater systems installations and septic system repairs.”
Part of the ADS Arc Chamber line, the Arc 18 provides a maximized infiltrative surface area and storage capacity along with an integral 20-degree articulation connection. The Arc chamber line is manufactured in the Northwest at the company’s Olympia, Wash., plant in addition to other plants throughout the U.S. The 5-ft-long Arc 18 is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with a positive post and dome joint connection that enables the units to be easily and quickly installed in straight or contoured applications. A diamond plate traction pattern on the external corrugations provides a tough nonslip surface.
