ABOUT SEPTIC SYSTEMS

Households that are not served by public sewers usually depend on a septic system to dispose of wastewater. There are many different types of septic systems designed to fit a wide range of soil and site conditions. These include mound systems, sand filter systems, and pressure distribution systems.

 

A standard septic system consists of two main parts; the septic tank and the leach field. Between the tank and the leach field is a distribution box that distributes wastewater to several absorption (leach) fields. Some locations depending on the time of installation may only have one absorption (leach) field.
