Eco-Friendly Treatment for Wastewater in Oklahoma

Wastewater in Oklahoma is adapted for use in another way after it leaves the extraction plumbing system. Septic systems treat wastewater for a single residential or commercial building in remote areas where there is no public wastewater service. Wastewater can carry hazardous pathogens that can put the public at risk if it is not properly contained and treated. There are standard guidelines to follow for wastewater disposal. Homes that aren’t part of a water treatment facility need septic systems to store and treat Wastewater in Oklahoma in an environmentally friendly way. Fifty percent of wastewater comes from toilets and laundry machines. Dishwashers, sink faucets and bath water makes up the rest. A septic system is made compatible for a home according to the grade of soil on the property and family size.

There are a few guidelines to follow for choosing a septic tank that is fitting for the layout of a building and the landscape. A soil test is required to determine the tank design that works best for the leach field. The local government and designer of the system to be installed evaluate everything the septic system comprises of. The number of occupants must agree with the capacity of the septic tank. This is a vital step because a tank that can’t handle the volume of wastewater it receives can fail from overload. Soil may just look like dirt, but it contains beneficial microbes that break down harmful pathogens. Beneficial microbes in soil is a fundamental element in treating wastewater.

ORI Environmental has the most recent high performing septic system designs. A gravity system is one of the most popular models. The model is laid out with the drain field beneath the soil. Soil must be at least three feet deep. The tank is partitioned into two chambers. Heavy materials settle to the bottom of the tank and leaves a lighter scum layer to float to the top. A clear liquid called effluent is released into the second chamber. Effluent is the liquid left over after pathogens are killed. Effluent is the substance that dissolves in soil underground as a fertilizer. Septic tanks convert wastewater into a reusable material for environmentally responsible sewage treatment.
