When tasked with designing an onsite wastewater treatment system, you may find that the options for technology choices can be overwhelming. Finding the best solution that will satisfy project specific needs while also meeting regulatory requirements can be simple and pain free, if you are familiar with the different types of technologies and when each is most applicable. This presentation will review the differences between standard anaerobic septic design, and two different types of aerobic advanced treatment technologies – suspended growth and fixed film. We will briefly cover an overview of how each treatment technology works to degrade organics in wastewater while reducing effluent solids, what components are involved with each system, and what factors and applications might influence the decision of using one technology vs another. This presentation will focus on high level general aspects and is ideal for installers, designers, or equipment distributors that are new at one or more of the above- mentioned technologies.
