Septic Tank Sewage Treatment Systems
Septic Tank Sewage Treatment Systems ( or septic tank systems as they are called in some parts of the world,) treat
sewage at its location, rather than transporting the sewage to a sewer system or larger treatment system nearby. Because many
septic tank systems throughout the world are not functioning properly, various laws have been passed to help prevent the serious
environmental and human health problems they can cause.
Acts or Regulations, in different parts of the world set requirements for minimum treatment standards, new construction and
replacement of systems. Some local jurisdictions require disclosure of system status and location upon property transfer,
and may have stricter requirements. Therefore if you're not sure your system is in compliance with the law, check with
your local government office.
of Septic Tank Systems
There are various types of
septic systems. The most common type in a lot of countries consists of an underground septic tank of differing types, which
then connects to a soil treatment system, usually a land drainage system or drainfield, a mound, or an at-grade system.
