Lake Saved from Contamination

A mobile home park in Michigan had a failed septic system resulting in surfacing effluent and contamination of a nearby lake. The site had an existing 20,000 gallon (75,708 liter) septic tank, and the owner was restricted to pumping and hauling the waste away. A replacement drain field was not possible due to site constraints, including limited space, poor soil conditions, and a high water table.

After careful consideration, a new system was designed to treat 5,000 gpd (18,927 lpd), utilizing the existing septic tank and a Clarus Environmental WW4 filter, Two ZFL-2400 Fusion® Treatment Systems were installed in parallel with influent evenly split using a Tru-Flo® Splitter. Treated effluent was collection in a 1,500-gallon (5,678 liter) dose tank. Two Zoeller® Model N153 pumps were used to dose the low pressure drain fields.

Since startup, the system has performed perfectly. System maintenance is performed twice a year.
