12VAC5-640-434. Reliability

There needs to be a provision in each Reliability class for homes with private wells that share the same power source. In the event of a power failure both the well and the discharging system will not operate. Without water flow from the residence, the discharging system cannot produce effluent. The same condition can be accomplished with a water control valve for homes on city water. No power no water.
