What Is A Septic System?

Septic systems consist of two basic parts; a septic tank and a soil absorptions system.  The septic tank provides a small portion of the treatment by creating a large quiet compartment to allow solid material to settle out of the waste water and collect in the tank.  Once the large solid material is settled out, the sewage follows into a deep layer of unsaturated soil where the soil and microorganisms growing in the soil remove the pollutants before the waste water enters ground or surface water.  

Septic systems are simple to operate and when properly designed, constructed and maintained, they do an excellent job of removing pollutants from waste water to protect the area's water resources.
