Supporting Innovations To Reduce Nitrogen Pollution From Septic Systems
Septic systems are common in coastal marine communities on the East Coast of the United States. Septic systems consist of subsurface wastewater treatment structure and use a combination of natural processes and technology to treat residential sanitary waste and greywater from bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry. Partially cleaned wastewater is discharged from septic tanks into drain fields, where the water is further treated through biological processes as it travels through gravel, soil, and can eventually reach groundwater. Groundwater linkages with surface waters can then transport any nutrients and contaminants that are present in discharge directly into coastal waters.
Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Approaches Solve Community Challenges
Decentralized systems are proving their value beyond traditional use in rural settings, treating larger volumes of wastewater in diverse applications while easing O&M concerns.
Custom Solutions For Reuse Applications
As supplies of fresh water become increasingly scarce, methods of recycling and reusing this vital resource are getting more attention than ever before. Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems consistently produce clear effluent that meets the most stringent permit limits. This effluent is suitable for a variety of reuse applications (governed by local regulations) including irrigation, toilet flushing, industrial cooling, and car washing. With a 15-year track record, the AdvanTex textile filter is a proven technology that not only treats greywater to reuse levels, but is also ideal for treating residential or commercial wastewater.
An Affordable Greywater Treatment And Reuse Solution For Commercial Properties
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) wanted an environmentally friendly method for disposing of the greywater generated by the 336 shower buildings at their showcase camping and training facility, the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve (SBR) in West Virginia. The chosen technology would need to be energy-effi cient and take up as little space as possible.
Liquid-Only Sewers Offer A Cost-Effective Solution
Liquid-only sewers (also known as “effluent sewers”) have proven to be a cost-effective solution for municipalities, new subdivisions, and a variety of other areas in need of sewer. As opposed to the big pipes and deep excavations typically required by gravity sewers, liquid-only sewers use small-diameter, shallowly buried mainlines that follow the contour of the land and are easily installed with light-duty equipment, minimizing disturbance to the surrounding area.
Onsite STEP System Handles Seasonal Peaks At U.S. National Park
In 2017, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California was the second most visited place in the entire U.S. national park system, with almost fifteen million visitors. Established in 1972, it’s also one of the largest national parks located in an urban area, offering a wide variety of activities – from touring Alcatraz Island to hiking Montara Mountain to swimming at Stinson Beach.
