For many small and medium communities, centralized or conventional sewer options are technically complicated and/or are often the expensive choice for managing wastewater treatment. As the demand for water reaches critical levels for most areas around the world, decentralized treatment systems are becoming increasingly popular by returning treated water back to the local environment. 

Decentralized systems, when installed as an alternative to sewers, reduce costs for communities and individuals. Builders and land developers searching for reasonable wastewater treatment options are requesting the use of utilizing advanced onsite treatment systems for their properties. While many governments have passed new environmental regulations; officials see these types of systems as the potential answer for hundreds of small communities far from municipal public wastewater plants.
