Manuals and Approvals

AES is approved in the western part of New York State on an area by area basis. Appendix 75-a, under the Specific Waivers (75-a.11) of the Wastewater Treatment Standards allows this. A designated full-time city, county or part-county health department official may issue a Specific Waiver, approving the design and installation of AES. When installed as a replacement system, AES may be be used throughout the State of New York. Be sure to check with your local approving authority.

New York Design & Installation Manual

In New York, certification is required for all designers and installers. The classes are a great way to learn more about our product, even if you are not seeking certification. We strongly recommend regulators involved in the review and inspection of Advanced Enviro-Septic® systems take the certification training.


As part of certification, an assessment test is required. This should be taken only after viewing the class videos and reading the Design and Installation Manual. The test is open book and is not timed. A passing score of 70% is required for certification.
