Types of Wastewater Treatment Systems Dundas

If your land isn't connected to a municipal sewer network, handling and disposing of wastewater must take place on-site.

There are 2 main types of wastewater treatment systems:

#1 Septic Tanks Dundas

Septic tanks have long been recognised as an efficient means of wastewater treatment in rural regions without access to main drainage, providing more cost-effective options than main draining for most Dundas households.

Under this system, household wastewater travels by pipe to subterranean septic tanks located underground. Proper maintenance of these tanks is key for their effective operation; once full capacity has been reached in one or more tanks, sewage leaves them and enters an absorption trench or leach field system for disposal.

The septic tank serves as the foundation of any septic system, operating simply and efficiently: certain substances such as grease and fats float to the top, creating a "scum layer", while decomposed solids (sludge) settle at its base.

Features of septic tanks:

  • Septic tanks are ideal for sandy or rocky terrains
  • Inadequate for lots smaller than 8000 square metres
  • Require desludging every 3-5 years

Septic Tank Advantages and Disadvantages

Before determining the suitability of a septic tank for yourself or your Dundas property, it's essential to understand both their advantages and disadvantages. While septic tanks offer an economical method of dealing with wastewater management needs, their regular upkeep must ensure optimal performance; additionally, improper care could lead to contamination and environmental pollution if proper upkeep is neglected.

Septic tanks offer primary treatment of wastewater and require periodic pumping by a certified wastewater professional to ensure optimal functioning. Their environmental impacts tend to be less damaging compared to other wastewater treatment methods due to containing solids and grease within their tanks; however, improper maintenance could still create effluent that poses risks to local ecosystems.

#2 Sewage Treatment Systems

Sewage treatment systems and wastewater treatment plants are designed to safely purify sewage and wastewater before its discharge into the environment.

These plants employ both primary and secondary treatment techniques to process water. By employing methods like aeration, clarification, and disinfection they elevate its quality to an exceptional level - ready for use by gardens and lawns alike.

Features of sewage treatment systems:

  • Suitable for sandy, rocky, or steep terrains
  • Provides excellent quality treated effluent
  • Usable for surface or subsurface drip irrigation
  • Permissible in environmentally sensitive or high water table areas
  • Approved for use in commercial properties
  • Requires quarterly servicing
  • Tank desludging is needed every 3-5 years
