septic tank organic treatment Articles

  • Septic tank treatment explained

    Your septic tank acts as the collection point for your household sewage. It provides a holding area to allow the waste to settle and for micro-organisms to break down, liquefy and deodourise the organic matter.  The process is entirely biological and needs the presence of a healthy colony of bacteria and fungi to operate successfully. Why Problems Arise Modern cleaning agents ...

  • Taney county man works to improve septic tanks

    Taney County — Perched casually atop a ring of unearthed dirt in his back yard, Floyd Gilzow peered into a pit as two mud-covered men tinkered with his septic tank Tuesday morning. The men — employees of White River Valley Environmental Services — were retrofitting the tank with a second chamber that will incorporate oxygen into the on-site sewage treatment process. Most of the ...

  • Comparing the performance of prescribed septic tanks to long, narrow, flooded designs

    About 30% of all sewage generated in North America passes through septic tanks, but there is a lack of study to improve these important treatment vessels, and there is no performance-based standard. A survey of existing literature shows that septic tank effluent quality is improved in tanks designed for quiet, laminar fluid-flow and minimum ‘dead space’ such as in longer, narrower tanks. A ...

  • Treatment of wastewater from a school in a decentralized filtration system by percolation over organic packing media

    Based on results obtained in the laboratory a WWTP composed of a septic tank and an aerated percolating filter packed with organic media was built for a school. The system can treat 18 m3 d−1 and was operated with a hydraulic loading rate of 0.078 (m3 m−2 d−1). For 360 days different operational conditions including start-up; stabilization; operation with aeration and non aeration; effect of ...

  • Sludge Treatment and Disposal Technologies

    Most wastewater treatment processes produce a by-product that purifies wastewater before it is released into local waterways. This by-product is named as sludge. Typically in solid, semi-solid or liquid state, it is in fact an amalgamation of all the liquid wastes that are discharged by domestic houses, commercial properties, industry, and/or agriculture after aerobic biological treatment. ...

  • Waste Water Treatment Processes Explained

    SUNCOAST WASTE WATER MANAGEMENT  presents  AEROBIC -verses- ANAEROBIC THE AEROBIC PROCESS There are two basic types of sewerage treatment processes, which are the Aerobic process and the Anaerobic process. Aerobic means with air or oxygen and Anaerobic (septic) means without air or oxygen. Aerobic bacteria are a higher life form and when digesting waste are utilising dissolved oxygen or air in ...

  • Vertical flow constructed wetlands: kinetics of nutrient and organic matter removal

    The kinetics of organic matter and nutrient removal in a pilot vertical subsurface wetland with red ferralitic soil as substrate were evaluated. The wetland (20 m2) was planted with Cyperus alternifolius. The domestic wastewater that was treated in the wetland had undergone a primary treatment consisting of a septic moat and a buffer tank. From the sixth week of operation, the ...

  • Anaerobic Reactor Design Concepts for the Treatment of Domestic Wastewater

    Since the earlier anaerobic treatment systems, the design concepts were improved from classic reactors like septic tanks and anaerobic ponds, to modern high rate reactor configurations like anaerobic filters, UASB, EGSB, fixed film fluidized bed and expanded bed reactors, and others. In this paper, anaerobic reactors are evaluated considering the historical evolution and types of wastewaters. The ...

  • An Infrastructure Grows · Decentralized Treatment and Recycling Domestic Wastewater

    THE TERM, “decentralized waste-water management,” refers to the process of treating and discharging treated wastewater in the local vicinity where it is generated. Decentralized systems typically use the soil as the final receptor of the treated wastewater instead of discharging to surface waters, which are generally the receptors of treated wastewater from larger centralized treatment plants. ...

  • Long-term hygienic barrier efficiency of a compact on-site wastewater treatment system

    Received for publication September 11, 2008. The long-term use of a filter-based, on-site wastewater treatment system increases nutrient discharge to receiving waters and may reduce its hygienic barrier efficiency. The main purpose of this research was to assess the hygienic barrier efficiency and the associated health risks of an on-site system that had exceeded its 5-yr design capacity with ...

  • ON-SITE SEWAGE SYSTEMS: NEW OUTLOOK FOR DECENTRALIZED WASTEWATER TREATMENT

    As researchers analyze the soils’ ability to absorb discharge, more knowledge is gained about alternatives to septic tanks and standard drain fields that include peat filter systems, constructed wetlands and drip irrigation. ONE out of every four American households currently treat and release wastewater on their own property. Although most people assume that on-site systems are confined to rural ...


  • Nitrogen and carbon dynamics beneath on-site wastewater treatment systems in Pitt County, North Carolina

    On-site wastewater treatment systems (OWS) are a potentially significant non-point source of nutrients to groundwater and surface waters, and are extensively used in coastal North Carolina. The goal of this study was to determine the treatment efficiency of four OWS in reducing total dissolved nitrogen (TDN) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations before discharge to groundwater and/or ...
