4.3.7 Maintenance

  • During plant establishment, irrigation should be applied until vegetation has been established.
  • Occasional irrigation may be required after construction of the facility, particularly during the dry summer months. Irrigation after establishment will depend upon plant health.
  • Evaluate landscaping and replant as necessary to ensure 100 percent facility coverage.
  • Remove non-native, invasive plant species when found in the facility.
  • Remove garbage, landscaping debris, and other material that may impede uniform water sheet flow.
  • Maintain or restore as needed level spreaders and/or facility grading to provide for on-going effective sheet flow over the dispersion area surface.
