Septage receiving is becoming a common service at municipal wastewater treatment plants around the world. However, septage receiving can be rather tough on treatment plants as septage can be anywhere from 6 to 80 times more concentrated than municipal wastewater. Septage commonly contains significant amounts of grease, scum, grit, rocks, rags, hair, plastics, and other debris. Many of these contaminants can disrupt and even damage the standard treatment processes used for municipal wastewater treatment. Therefore, it’s imperative that septage is well screened before it enters downstream plant processes. Use of the RotoSieve Septage Receiving Unit not only protects the plant from damage caused by untreated septage but may also create an opportunity for revenue streams that were not available to the plant or community in the past.
