untreated house-hold wastewater which has not come into contact with toilet waste. -OR- wastewater discharged from lavatories, bathtubs, showers, clothes washers, and laundry sinks.
DEFINE Landscape Area.
The Landscape Area of the site is equal to the total site area less the building footprint, paved surfaces, water bodies, patios, etc.

DEFINE Potable Water
Potable Water is water suitable for drinking and supplied from wells or municipal water systems.
DEFINE Aquatic Systems
Aquatic Systems are ecologically designed treatment systems that utilize a diverse community of biological organisms (e.g., bacteria, plants and fish) to treat wastewater to advanced levels.
DEFINE Blackwater
Blackwater does not have a single definition that is accepted nationwide. Wastewater from toilets and urinals is, however, always considered blackwater.
DEFINE Wastewater
Wastewater from kitchen sinks (perhaps differentiated by the use of a garbage disposal), showers, or bathtubs may be considered blackwater by state or local codes. Project teams should comply with the blackwater definition as established by the authority having jurisdiction in their areas.
DEFINE Composting Toilet System
Composting Toilet Systems are dry plumbing fixtures that contain and treat human waste via microbiological processes.
DEFINE On-site Wastewater Treatment
On-site Wastewater Treatment uses localized treatment systems to transport, store, treat and dispose of wastewater volumes generated on the project site.
DEFINE Non-Potable water
Non-potable Water is water that is not suitable for human consumption without treatment that meets or exceeds EPA drinking water standards.
DEFINE Potable water
Potable Water is water that is suitable for drinking and is supplied from wells or municipal water systems.
DEFINE Process Water
Process Water is water used for industrial processes and building systems such as cooling towers, boilers and chillers.
DEFINE Tertiary Treatment
Tertiary Treatment is the highest form of wastewater treatment that includes the removal of nutrients, organic and solid material, along with biological or chemical polishing (generally to effluent limits of 10 mg/L BOD5 and 10 mg/L TSS).
How does a Non-Water-Using Urnial work?
A Non-Water-Using Urinal replaces the water flush with a specially designed trap that contains a layer of buoyant liquid that floats above the urine layer, blocking sewer gas and urine odors from the room.
DEFINE Metering Controls
Metering Controls are generally manual on/automatic off controls which are used to limit the flow time of water. These types of controls are most commonly installed on lavatory faucets and on showers.
What are Automatic Fixture Sensors
Automatic Fixture Sensors are motion sensors that automatically turn on/off lavatories, sinks, water closets and urinals.  Sensors may be hard wired or battery operated.
