Eric Murdock P.E. to Present New Septic System Technologies, Design and Installation Techniques on May 10th for NYSSPE PEC Group


This coming Tuesday, May 10th Erick E. Murdock P.E. will be present in detail new septic system technologies and general septic system design and installation techniques. The presentation will include Passive ATU – the next generation of Aerobic Treatment & Dispersal in septic systems. Eric was Project Manager for the U.S.E.P.A. funded demonstration project, which was set up to research, select, and install alternative onsite wastewater treatment systems in the Skaneateles Lake Watershed. Nineteen systems were installed as part of the project. Most of these systems were the first of their kind in New York State and/or the United States.

The May 10th presentation will be held at McLaren Engineering in West Nyack, NY and will include discussion on new septic trench configurations, solutions for challenging sites for septic systems, including lakefront properties and steep slope design. There are still a few remaining seats available at the presentation. Use this link to RSVP or to obtain more information.
