The Indirect Subsurface Discharge method, using either Rapid Infiltration basins or multiple drain fields similar to the Firelight Meadows system should be investigated in further depth. The ability to discharge continuously year round, and also with less stringent nutrient limits could provide a reliable and flexible alternative to irrigation or direct discharge. Is there a potential to locate additional subsurface discharge facilities adjacent to the Yellowstone Club or Spanish Peaks reservoirs?
Agreed. Opportunities for subsurface discharge will continue to be explored. Pumping effluent all the way to the Yellowstone Club or Spanish Peaks reservoirs may not be cost-effective, but developing additional subsurface discharge at lower elevations will be kept in consideration.
