Sewage Treatment: How it Works

The illustration alongside shows a typical sewage treatment plant installation. Key elements:

A - Wastewater and sewage from the property is fed through to the treatment plant.

B - The treatment plant (click for a closer look) allows the solids to settle out and actively treats the sewage via an aerobic (oxygen-dependent) process, breaking it down.

C - The resulting effluent, which is typically 95% clean, can be discharged into a nearby ditch, stream, river, lake or land drain system, subject to appropriate approvals.
