Communities and developers throughout the world are struggling with wastewater collection and treatment issues. For many areas, conventional gravity sewer systems are too costly. Moreover, conventional sewers are not watertight, so their overflows contaminate our rivers, bays, and oceans.
“Given the diversity of the new technology that is now being developed, it is reasonable to speculate that, in the future, the continued use of conventional gravity flow systems will be a thing of the past.”
