Two new elementary school buildings in North East Ohio were being built in an area that had no access to centralized sewer. Each school educates up to 625 students with 40 employees in a state-of-the-art educational setting. Typically, schools are known for high concentrations of Ammonia and if food is prepared on site, high BOD can also be a constituent to mitigate.
Consultants and engineers designed two individual 6,000 gallon per day decentralized wastewater treatment systems. One for each school that each incorporated two 5,000 gallons per day primary tanks, a 3,000 gpd flow equalization tank with dual pumps followed by two 3,000-gallon recirculation tanks with two EZ Treat 4L synthetic recirculating media filters at each school to treat the water prior to dispersal to both a drip and elevated drip mound system. Effluent requirements prior to dispersal were 30 TSS/40 BOD.
The EZ Treat system has been in operation for over three years consistently treating the wastewater prior to dispersal, thus protecting the receiving systems, soils, water table and surrounding environment. Tim Frank Septic Tank Cleaning Company has been maintaining the EZ Treat system since startup ensuring consistent annual operations and effluent quality. For more information, please contact us.
