Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS)

The new term for septic system. With a new understanding of how soil bacteria in an aerobic soil environment, continue to treat waste after the septic tank, the term septic system becomes obsolete. New advanced technologies rely on additional oxygen to reduce waste strength. Any of these options used on a particular site to treat and recycle the water back into the environment for onsite disposal, are considered OWTS. <
