Municipal Sewers and Onsite Systems – Each Has Its Place.
Wherever you live, chances are you have one of two kinds of wastewater system. You may be connected to a town or city sewer network with a centralized water treatment plant, or you could have your own onsite septic system consisting of a septic tank and a soil absorption field or leachfield. In keeping with the general trend of migration out of the cities into suburban and rural areas, onsite systems for recycling wastewater have become a sustainable long-term solution in places where community public sewer systems are not physically or financially viable. Onsite systems — which consist of a septic tank and a soil absorption field or leachfield — make efficient use of space as land development puts new pressures on natural resources.
onsite septic systems
A septic system is an onsite wastewater treatment system that processes and purifies household waste (effluent). The effluent consists of blackwater (toilet water) and greywater (kitchen sink, bathtub and laundry wastes).
Public health and safety
Protecting public health and the environment are the main priorities when it comes to onsite wastewater recycling. Dangerous bacteria, microbes and pathogens must be completely removed from wastewater before it re-enters the groundwater. Infiltrator products are scientifically designed to provide more efficient wastewater treatment by optimizing the soil’s inherent treatment capabilities.
