Our next segment is a follow-up from the California Dept. of Resources Recycling & Recovery 2016 TDA usage guide with this information: “Rock aggregate (crushed gravel) is the conventional medium used for septic system leach fields. The practice of gravel mining from riverbeds is being reduced due to possible environmental degradation. Environmental controls on rock quarries have heightened the operational expenses of these sites, and in many cases they have ceased operating. The result is that rock aggregate (RA) has become costly and problematic to obtain in many sites. TDA has many benefits that make it an excellent option to rock aggregate for drainage projects. TDA has higher permeability than drain rock aggregate and is much lower weight. Rather than potentially stirring up environmental problems by mining or producing rock aggregate, usage of TDA reuses a scrap product and keeps junk vehicle tires out of landfills. TDA may perform better than rock aggregate and in most instances does so at a reduced cost. TDA has been used successfully as a substitute for RA in drain fields for over 20 years in numerous states including AR, CA, CO, GA, IA, KS, NM, NY, NC, SC, TX, VT, and Virginia.

The push for the use of TDA has been largely financail. Depending on the operation and transportation expenses, construction savings for drain fields can fluctuate 10 to 90% when TDA is used in place of RA. Because the density of TDA is about 1/3 of that of gravel, only 1/3 of the tonnage of TDA is needed for the same size drain field. Many reports have indicated the extensive biological activity found in TDA media leach fields. Generally, these studies have shown that TDA fosters a healthy population of bacteria & other organisms that offer active biofilm treatment of the organic portion of the leachate in systems. The design of a leach field structure is quite similar to a project using traditional rock or gravel. The primary difference would be shifting the design to account for the variance in the engineering properties of TDA.

After excavation to create trenches for the leach field, the TDA would be utilized as a substitute for RA backfill. Since the TDA treats wastewater, the material should be clear of any contamination that could merge into the surrounding soil or groundwater. A separation block is used in leach site construction between the RA and the soil. The barrier is often made of treated paper for conventional RA systems; however, because the protruding wires in TDA could tear the paper, geotextile fabric is a solid alternative.” The full report is available here.
