Innovative and experimental systems are technologies approved by the Division of Environmental Health that are not specifically described in the sewage rules as a conventional, modified or alternative system. A technical advisory committee meets monthly to provide guidance on I&E applications. These technologies can include pretreatment, trench disposal methods and other on-site wastewater treatment and disposal system components. This also applies to controlled demonstration and accepted systems approved pursuant to applicable laws and rules. Approvals are typically issued to a specific company or organization, and provide specific information about the technologies design, installation,
siting criteria, construction, and any other information about the proper installation, operation, maintenance and permitting of the technology.
