Title WRRCTMR No.11 Percolation of Sewage Through Tantalus Cinders
Creator Ishizaki, Kenneth Young, Reginald HF
Subject Cesspools -- Hawaii -- Oahu. Honolulu (Hawaii) Sewage disposal in the ground -- Hawaii -- Oahu. Soil percolation -- Hawaii -- Oahu. Soil permeability -- Hawaii -- Oahu.
Description A pilot study was conducted on the ability of Tantalus cinders to remove organic matter and solids from percolating domestic waste water. Results showed little change in either parameter after passage through 2.5 feet of the cinder. The cinder had a coefficient of permeability of 35,200 gallons/day/ft^2 (1.66 cm/sec) as determined in the laboratory. Under both constant and intermittent flow conditions the infiltration rate of the waste water decreased rapidly to as low as 1.07 ml/min from...
