  • Why septic treatment systems fail to reduce nitrogen in US residential areas

    The US EPA in cooperation with various state, academic, and NGO agencies has been involved in field tests throughout the eastern United States of conventional and advanced septic systems in order to determine “best” design for the reduction of total nitrogen (as a combination of ammonia-N plus nitrite+nitrate-N), phosphorus, and coliforms for residential (single and multifamily) septic systems ...


  • Enhancement of a UASB-septic tank performance for decentralised treatment of strong domestic sewage

    The possibility of enhancing the process performance of the UASB-septic tank for treating strong sewage in Palestine by means of inoculating the reactor with well adapted anaerobic sludge and/or adding a packing media to the upper part of the reactor, creating an anaerobic hybrid (AH)-septic tank, was investigated. To achieve these objectives, two community onsite UASB-septic tank and AH-septic ...

  • Effect of soil fortified by polyurethane foam on septic tank effluent treatment

    Fortified soil was made up of a mixture at a mass ratio 4/1000–6/1000 of sponge and natural soil according to the results of column experiment. The fortified soil had bigger porosity and higher hydraulic conductivity than the natural soil. The columns packed with 900 mm of the fortified soil endured a flow rate equivalent to 100 L/m2/d of septic tank effluent and the average chemical oxygen ...
