  • Survey of the Home Sewage Disposal Systems in Northeast Ohio

    This article reports on failure rates in onsite sewage treatment systems (STS) that were found as part of a comprehensive seven-county survey that was performed under the auspices of the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) during the summer of 2000. The goal was to determine the percentage of onsite, individual home wastewater systems that were “failing.” A system was identified ...

  • Factors affecting the performance and risks to human health of on-site wastewater treatment systems

    Aerobic wastewater treatment systems (aerobic systems) are the preferred choice in a region overlying a karstic aquifer used for drinking water supplies, as they are thought to provide better protection to groundwater and human health than standard septic systems. However, aerobic systems in operation do not always perform to design standard; while this is often blamed on lack of maintenance, few ...

  • Assessing decentralised wastewater treatment technologies: correlating technology selection to system robustness, energy consumption and GHG emission

    In this study, we compared two different types of decentralised systems in South East Queensland (SEQ) designed to produce Class A+ recycled water, and assessed their system robustness to shock loads, energy consumption and fugitive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We found that through BioWin® modelling, the membrane reactor (MBR) system was relatively robust to hydraulic ...

  • Ecofriendly Alternative to Fight Grease Build-ups

    Grease traps or Grease interceptors capture the grease that goes down the kitchen drains. The simple fixture prevents slimy build up inside the drainpipes, which may result in choked drains and backflows. It is essential to cleanout these traps timely before the build up is too high to tackle. Properly maintained grease interceptors allow smooth operation of the drains by keeping the water ...

  • Condition assessment survey of onsite sewage disposal systems (OSDSs) in Hawaii

    Onsite sewage disposal systems (OSDSs) are the third leading cause of groundwater contamination in the USA. The existing condition of OSDSs in the State of Hawaii was investigated to determine whether a mandatory management program should be implemented. Based on observed conditions, OSDSs were differentiated into four categories: ‘pass’, ‘sludge scum’, ...

  • Septic Tank Replacement Schemes - Case Study

    In some countries more than 90 percent of households are without a connection to a sewer or whose sewerage infrastructure has failed due to age or poor maintenance. Most of these areas have not installed conventional gravity systems due to the high costs involved. The town may be on very flat land or a high water table that would require very deep gravity mains causing not only a high maintenance ...
