Advanced Treatment Systems take effluent directly from a septic tank and take treatment to another level.The main advantages to a system of this type is that setbacks can be reduced from wells and waterways making it easier to fit onto small lots or near waterways.Also it will help lengthen the lifespan of your leach field, breaking down fat and oil that would likely clog your field.
After completing the Elk Creek Elementary School in Jefferson County we moved out to Windy Peaks Outdoor Education Laboratory to start replacing the septic system there. This will me composed of 3 2000 gallon per day system with advanced treatment using Orenco AX Max 125 units. From what I can see the value of wastewater treatment is only going to become more and more of a focus in that clean water will be more difficult to find. The result will be that treatment of contaminated water will get more focus. For this reason we strive to install the best quality systems that we can. It seems this is an essential step in preserving what we have. Advanced treatment is not cheaper but if we focus on the cheapest means we will only continue to replicate the mistakes of the past. Moving forward we have to consider long term effects and try to mitigate the possibility that we would destroy the pristine nature that we all adore.
