ProStep(TM) Effluent Pumping Systems
Multi Family and / or Commercial Developments
ProSTEP™ Effluent Pumping Systems
Small & mid-sized communities, rural communities, neighborhood clusters, new residential subdivisions, commercial properties, replacement of failing deep force mains, sewer expansions, ecologically sensitive areas (waterways, wetlands), for any site conditions (flat, hilly, shallow bedrock or high groundwater).
HOW A EFFLUENT SEWER WORKS
With an effluent sewer, raw sewage flows from the house or business to a watertight underground concrete tank, where it is pretreated. Only the filtered liquid is discharged (by either pump or gravity) through the service lines, to small diameter collection lines, that can be trenched in and follow the contour of the land and below the frost line. Solids remain in the concrete tank, for passive, natural treatment. Sludge in the tanks typically requires pumping only once every 7 to 10 years.
FRACTION OF THE COST OF CONVENTIONAL SEWERS
Effluent sewers dramatically reduce short-term and long-term wastewater treatment cost for communities and developers. In fact, effluent sewers are often half the cost, or less, of conventional gravity sewers.
