An installation using combination treatment and dispersal piping clears the way for a property owner to create a new onsite system and sell her home. He found his solution in the Advanced Enviro-Septic (AES) system from Presby Environmental. The non-mechanical passive system uses combination treatment and dispersal pipes. Besides being the first installation of its kind under new state regulations allowing alternative technologies, the system saved the owner thousands of dollars over conventional designs and enabled the property to be sold.
Case Study - Groundwater Discharge Permit - Plymouth, Massachusetts
The process of obtaining a groundwater discharge permit for a subdivision scale septic absorption system was faciliated by using the advanced GIS features within EnviroInsite. Geologic features were downloaded and presented at the site scale along with the subdivision boundary and potential downgradient receptors. A cross-section was created showing the detailed soil descriptions, water levels were contoured, and the post-construction water levels shown by superimposing the calculated water table mound.
Septic shouldn’t be a Nightmare for a Dream Home
ProblemIn January of 2002, a couple in Homosassa Springs, Florida (near Orlando) had big plans for large new dream home. They had torn down their old Florida “vernacular” home design, or commonly referred to as the “Cracker Style.” They had major setbacks from the beginning due to the lot size and location; they also began construction without out the proper permits and knowing all that was involved with upgrading their septic system. When they applied for their building permit, they were...
Load limit of a UASB fed septic tank-treated domestic wastewater
Performance of a 250 L pilot-scale up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor, operated at ambient temperatures, fed septic tank effluents intermittently, was monitored for hydraulic retention time (HRT) from 18 h to 4 h. The total suspended solids (TSS), total chemical oxygen demand (CODT), dissolved chemical oxygen demand (CODdis) and suspended chemical oxygen demand (CODss) removal efficiencies ranged from 20 to 63%, 15 to 56%, 8 to 35% and 22 to 72%, respectively, for the HRT range tested. Above 60% TSS...
Passive Wastewater Treatment System Introduced to Colorado - Case Study
After a homeowner’s septic system failed on a small lot and the homeowner was faced with a large bill for a new system, Virgil Russon of Greeley, Colo., looked for a solution. He did extensive research for alternatives to pipe and stone, and found Advanced Enviro-Septic (AES). The AES System provides advanced treatment of septic effluent to tertiary quality, is completely passive with no motors or maintenance required, has a small footprint and requires no oversight or monitoring.

Care and Handling of Advanced Enviro - Septic ™ Pipe
Advanced Enviro-Septic™ (AES) is made entirely of durable, non-biodegradable plastic and geotextile fabrics, which enables the pipes to be lightweight and flexible for ease of transport and installation. This also extends system life, since there is nothing to break down or wear out once the system is properly installed. Although the AES is lightweight, the pipe is designed to withstand H20 loading (with proper installation and cover materials). Proper care and handling of the AES pipe is the responsibility...
