Guidelines for Soakaway System
For effective performance of a soakaway system, the following general principles should be adhered to:
(a) Check and clean up dung channels, screens and catch pits everytime before hosing out waste residues.
(b) Prevent overflow throughout the system. This may be achieved through proper design (eg. units should be of sufficient capacity and capability), construction and maintenance (eg. regular desludging). Allowing overflow to occur would result in prosecution.
(c) Keep vehicles off soakaway areas.
