Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems – a Guide for Specifiers

Session Synopsis

Traditionally, homes without access to a main sewer line have relied on septic tanks to deal with their wastewater. While these tanks are able to perform this function in a consistent and reliable manner, they are not very effective in terms of treating waste. Once water finds its way into a septic tank, its potential to be used again is effectively over.

The good news on this front is that an effective alternative is available. Homeowners and specifiers who are conscious of the need to save and re-use have the option of an Aerated Wastewater Treatment System. Far more effective than septic tanks, these systems produce effluent of a quality that is high enough for re-use on gardens and so forth.

Titled ‘Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems – a Guide for Specifiers’, this CPD Live session takes a close look at these products. Beginning, by outlining how they function, it lays out relevant design considerations associated with them, as well as the regulatory framework that those working with them need to know.

Key Learning Outcomes

At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:

  • Explain why residential wastewater systems sometimes need to be considered as alternatives to mains sewer and outline the various types available.
  • Define ‘Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems’ and explain the ways in which they differ from septic tanks.
  • Identify the regulatory framework that applies to residential wastewater systems and how it has been updated in recent times.
  • Outline the various design considerations – including factors like wastewater load and location of wastewater system – that specifiers must consider.
  • Outline the installation and maintenance requirements associated with Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems.
