Camp Onomia: Onamia, MN
Camp Onomia is a church camp located on Shakopee Lake. The Camp was required to do a system update. A previous design proposal called for large mounds that would have caused extensive damage to the wooded portion of their property. The camp has a kitchen, which serves three meals per day.
- Septic Check redesigned a system that uses pretreatment to reduce drain field size, thus enabling the dispersal system to fit between the trees.
- Some of the existing collection and tanks were compliant and were reused.
- Kitchen waste is pretreated using aerobic treatment units. It then mixes with the balance of the camp’s wastewater for additional treatment before dosing to long, narrow drainfields in the woods.
- Our design build saved over $300,000 from their original estimate.
