Tanks, Tanks and More Tanks
Tanks serve many purposes to meet our daily needs. They are so common today that most of us do not even realize how much we depend upon these simple storage containers. In septic system applications, the need for compact systems for small lots and for systems in environmentally sensitive areas is serving as a catalyst for tank innovation including increased safeguards to ensure watertightness.
Infiltrator® High Capacity H-20 Chambers Used in Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion, Hopkinton, Mass.
Although the Town of Hopkinton, MA had its own municipal sewer system, it did not have its own wastewater treatment plant which required their wastewater to be sent to two neighboring towns. As these facilities reached their discharge limits, the town needed to find a long term solution to their growing wastewater needs so they hired AECOM to investigate their options and perform a cost analysis. This led to the design and construction of a 350,000 gallon per day wastewater treatment plant which was partially funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Aquaworx™ IPC Panel and Plastic Septic Tanks from Infiltrator® Help Overcome Shallow Water Table Issues on Small Lot
A small lot on Lake Blackshear point in Cordele, Georgia sat vacant after several potential buyers unsuccessfully attempted to get a septic permit from the Crisp County Health Department. A shallow water table, less than 12,000 sf, of total space, and only a 50-foot setback to the lake made squeezing in a primary and replacement drainfield tricky. New owners determined to build a two-bedroom seasonal cabin on the lot turned to Matt Vinson of Vinson Septic Systems for help.
