The most common domestic wastewater treatment system used in rural areas is the septic tank-soil absorption system.  The septic tank removes settleable and floatable solids from the waste water.  The soil absorption field then filters and treats the clarified septic tank effluent and distributes it through the soil. Removing the solids from the wastewater protects the soil absorption system from clogging and failure.  In addition to removing solids, the septic tank also promotes biological digestion of a portion of the solids and stores the remaining undigested portion.

The first stage of the treatment system, the septic tank, removes solids by holding wastewater in the tank.  This allows the heavier solids to settle as sludge and the lighter particles to form scum at the top.  To accomplish this, wastewater should be held in the tank for at least 24 hours.  Up to 50 percent of the solids retained in the tank decompose; the remainder accumulates in the tank.  Biological and chemical additives are not needed to aid or accelerate decomposition.  The small, collapsing, and totally impacted septic tank shown here was ignored by the property owner for years, leading to total failure of the system.

As septic tank systems are used, sludge continues to accumulate in the bottom of the septic tank.  Properly designed tanks have enough space for up to three years safe accumulation of sludge.  When the sludge level increases beyond this point, sewage has less time to settle before leaving the tank and more solids escape into the absorption area.  If too much sludge accumulates, no settling occurs before the sewage flows to the soil absorption field.  Infiltration of sludge into the soil absorption field can cause system failure.  To prevent this, the tank must be pumped periodically.
