reside in a large tank that will discharge waste once it
achieves a specific volume, indicated by a transducer
with float backup, or float system. Again, grease mats
and flushables wreak havoc on these systems, causing
emergency call outs, pump failures, float failures, and
backups to dwellings and/or the ground surface. Backups that result in surfacing of sewage are called Sanitary
Sewer Overflows (SSOs) and require notification to the
local health department, state environmental department, and the United States Environmental Protection
Agency (USEPA).

There is nothing more expensive to a
community than an emergency service to
your system, and that service may just be the
beginning. A backup of sewage can result
in thousands of dollars of cleaning and
reconstruction work.
YOUR BASIC WASTEWATER
TREATMENT SYSTEM
Focusing on systems that treat wastewater and discharge the treated wastewater to the ground through
the soils, the treatment could range from simple solids
removal to remediation of the wastewater to a quality in
which it can be reused for toilet flushing or irrigation.  
Primary treatment is limited to the removal of
solids from the wastewater through basic settling and
floating across a tank, allowing the middle horizon of
separated water to discharge to the next step, which
in some systems is directly to a soil absorption system
(SAS). For these systems, in which primary treatment
is the first and last step, it should be known that the SAS
has a lifespan of typically 20 years, or less if you don't
perform the appropriate maintenance such as pumping to remove solids. All small systems, regardless of
the level of treatment, will require regular pumping to
keep the system from passing solids through to the final
discharge.
Secondary treatment is the process of removing
organic nutrients and suspended solids through biological treatment. This process requires oxygen in the
