What is an aerated wastewater treatment system?

An aerated wastewater treatment system, otherwise known as an AWTS, was developed as a way of both adequately treating and reusing wastewater in a safe and eco-friendly way. It is used for the treatment of domestic wastewater from either one or multiple homes, through various treatment ‘chambers’ which are attached to an irrigation system. The treated wastewater can then be used to water your garden or other areas of your property.

How does an AWTS work?

An aerated wastewater treatment system treats wastewater from your home in several stages through several chambers. Each chamber has a differing purpose, including :

  • The primary chamber : This chamber is very similar to a septic tank, where solids go to the bottom of the chamber and remain there as sludge and scum is collected at the top.
  • The aeration chamber : The partially treated wastewater is then mixed with air to assist bacteria to further treat it.
  • The settling chamber : Additional clarification happens through the settling of solids, which are then returned for further treatment to either the septic chamber or to the aeration chamber.
  • The disinfectant chamber : Effluent is then disinfected, usually through chlorination, before being used in irrigation processes.
