Do you ever wonder where all that wastewater and sludge we collect goes when we drive away from your business?
Wonder no more … here’s what we do with it.
We process all the septic, grease, pump station and treatment plant sludge through an aerobic sequence batch reactor system.
This involves a series of aerated tanks that are first used to reduce wastewater contaminants. The pre-treated liquid is then discharged to the local wastewater plant for additional treatment.
Sludge from this process is pressed through a belt filter press and lime stabilized to create what’s known as a “Class B biosolid.” This can be reused as a natural alternative to chemical fertilizer at local farms. And don’t worry, we work closely with each farm to assure correct agronomic loading rates are met for each planned crop.
Aren’t you glad you asked?
