These collection or conveyance systems often represent the major portion of the total capital cost associated with any wastewater system, so careful consideration should be made to avoid extraneous expense while also ensuring reliability and environmental compliance.
Let us help you design a system that takes everything into account.
Our STEP system creates a pressurized, small pipe influent delivery structure to the treatment plant which eliminates the need for the expensive piping and lift stations that gravity systems require. This means that developers can cut their cost as well as defer some of that reduced cost of the community wastewater system until lots are sold. Since each home shoulders some of the load associated with wastewater treatment, the initial cost and maintenance can be distributed to the homeowners as well.
Beyond reduction in development cost, STEP technology further enhances effluent water quality by leaving the majority of the solids at the point of origin where they can degrade through anaerobic processes. The effluent leaving the tank at the home then becomes the influent which the next component in the Aqua Tech system will treat through aerobic processes.
