I don't have the MPCA rule book handy but have worked with them enough to believe that you would still need to run it through your treatment system be that a private septic or a community wastewater treatment plant. I would bet that they will consider any water coming from your plumbing to be contaminated unless every drop is either tested or run through an approved and compliant treatment system. That is the way they operate.Obviously you could try doing and end around on them but my guess is they would not be too kind or understanding if they ever got wind of it.

I think those kind of regulations are up to the county. Check with the guy there, or look at the county web site.

Coon, before I will comment, can you tell me your definition of grey water? Not trying to be flippant or a [email protected] but many people call different things by the same name. You might be calling water from your kitchen sink or shower grey water while others will call water from the draintile grey water. Big difference in these and what is allowed to be untreated.

Years ago you could dump your floor drain, laundry, and kitchen into a sump type basket and pump it to the exterior.....Not anymore...+1 on what purple floyd said....if you have condensate from a furnace or a/c humidifier ect.....you can dump to the outside

Is you septic non compliant or has it failed? Big difference. A non compliant septic may work just fine. The county changes the rules, presto you are non compliant.

Failure has effluent going where it shouldn't and needs to be fixed, although there are those out in the rural areas with septics that run into a field or ditch or connect to tile system...

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
