Cleaning and Maintaining a Septic Tank

A septic tank is a large container that's buried underground and is used for the purpose of treating wastewater that flows out from a home. These tanks are typically made from fiberglass, plastic, or concrete. Over a period of time, sludge and scum layers will build up within the tank at a rate that's faster [...]

Aeration Systems for Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater aeration is a process that occurs when air is added directly to wastewater, which allows for aerobic bio-degradation of any pollutants contained within. Aeration is an essential component of treating wastewater. The main benefit of using aeration is that it's a natural method of getting rid of pollutants in the water. The chemicals that [...]

How Does Groundwater Become Contaminated?

Groundwater refers to any water that's found underground within the many spaces and cracks in landscapes of rock, soil, and sand. The water moves through aquifers in the ground, which occur when gravel, sandstone, and other materials exist in large spaces. The connected spaces of these materials make them permeable, which ensures the smooth flow [...]
