Types of wastewater treatment systems

The method by which wastewater needs to be treated can vary, generally into two primary systems:

Septic systems

An on-site sewage facility, septic systems involve treating wastewater via decomposition and drainage, using biological processes. In unsewered areas, septic systems provide safe effluent disposal.

Home sewage treatment systems

A home sewage treatment plant (HSTP) works by enabling bacteria to treat wastewater. An environmentally-friendly method, HSTP's separate solids and liquids through water transfer.

In this process, anaerobic bacteria treatment and liquid aeration works towards improving water quality. Effluent treated in this way can potentially be used on gardens and lawns without harming anyone.
