SPS 382.365(2)(b)2. 2. Individuals qualified to conduct soil evaluation under this subsection shall be an individual that maintains either a registration as provided in s. SPS 305.33 or a license as provided in ch. GHSS 4.
SPS 382.365(3) (3)Infiltration system design.
SPS 382.365(3)(a)(a) Influent quality. For stormwater and clearwater infiltration plumbing systems, the influent quality shall comply with the requirements in Table 382.70-1 for subsurface infiltration and irrigation.
SPS 382.365(3)(b) (b) In situ soil requirements.
SPS 382.365(3)(b)1.1. Except as provided in subd. 2., the minimum depth of suitable in situ soil for infiltration systems shall be as specified in Table 382.365-1 to separate the system from the highest groundwater elevation or bedrock. When groundwater mounding calculations affect the depth to seasonal groundwater, the depth of suitable soil shall be measured to the calculated elevation of mounded groundwater.

SPS 382.365 Note Note: See ch. SPS 382 Appendix for representative water quality levels. - See PDF for table PDF - See PDF for table PDF
SPS 382.365(3)(c) (c) Hydraulic application rates. The maximum hydraulic application rate for stormwater and clearwater subsurface infiltration plumbing systems shall be in accordance with one of the following methods.
SPS 382.365(3)(c)1. 1. The maximum hydraulic application rate shall be determined by soil analysis in accordance with sub. (2) (b) and Table 382.365-2.
SPS 382.365(3)(c)2. 2. The maximum hydraulic application rate shall be determined by field measurement using a nationally-accepted method and the correction factor as determined using Table 382.365-3. To determine the maximum hydraulic application rate, the measured infiltration rate at the infiltrative surface shall be divided by the correction factor as listed in Table 382.365-3. - See PDF for table PDF
SPS 382.365 Note a Use sandy loam design infiltration rates for fine sand, loamy fine sand, very fine sand, and loamy fine sand soil textures.
SPS 382.365 Note b Infiltration rates represent the lowest value for each textural class presented; based on Rawls et al., 1998 [Use of Soil Texture, Bulk Density and Slope of Water Retention Curve to Predict Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity, ASAE, Vol. 41(2), pp. 983-988].
