The most common water waste systems used in rural areas is the septic tank-soil absorption systems. The septic tank removes settable and floatable solids from the wastewater, and the soil absorption field filters and treats the clarified septic tank effluent. Removing the solids from the wastewater protects the soil absorption systems from clogging and premature failure. In addition to removing solids, the septic tank also stores the settled portion and permits digestion of a portion of those solids.

The septic tank removes solids by holding wastewater in the tank, which allows the solids to settle and scum to rise to the top. To accomplish this, wastewater should be held in the tank for at least 24 hours. Up to 50 percent of the solids retained in the tank decompose. Read More...
