Ohio has large areas of soils that are too shallow for typical septic tank-leach field systems, which require 36 inches of suitable soil before hitting a limiting layer. Limiting layers are bedrock, sand, and gravel, dense and compacted layers, and water tables. About 53 percent of soils in Ohio have limiting layers at shallow depths that do not provide the 36 inches of suitable soil, as shown in Figure 1. In these areas, mound systems are often used to remove pollutants from wastewater to protect the public health and the environment.
