What Are Sewage Treatment Plants

Sewage treatment plants are used to remove contaminants from a domestic and commercial property’s water waste. They effectively allow water to be treated and discharged away from the property itself without the possibility of affecting the local environment. The sewage treated is not limited to human waste but also includes wastewater from kitchens, bathrooms and washing machines.

Our sewage treatment plants in Devon are much preferred over the old-fashioned septic tank. They greatly reduce the chance of negatively affecting the local environment and the cost of clean-up, should there be an issue.

How Does A Sewage Treatment Plant Work?

A sewage treatment plant breaks down solid waste using internal mechanisms to produce a cleaner, more ecologically friendly effluent.

The primary tank receives wastewater and sewage, which disperses the sediments and liquids. The liquor that results is pumped into the biozone chamber. A pump circulates air through the chamber, encouraging friendly microorganisms to condense the organic materials. The result is broken down and purified as a result of this.

The waste that remains after the final waste chamber is 95% clean and ready for disposal.

Are Sewage Treatment Plants Better Than A Septic Tank?

The idea that sewage treatment plants and septic tanks are the same things is a prevalent fallacy. There are, however, some significant differences between the two.

A septic tank generates a highly polluting waste product that must be disposed of in a soakaway. The septic contaminants are then processed further by the normal aerobic soil bacteria. Septic tanks do not require electricity or maintenance. They just need to be emptied once a year.

A sewage treatment plant produces a non-polluting effluent that can be directly dumped into a stream ditch or other watercourse. They frequently demand electricity to run and will need to be serviced and emptied on a regular basis.
