S.O.S. - Save Our Septic® Wastewater Adventure Series Volume 2: “Alan's Watershed Moment, Part 2”

Continued from Part 1

Synopsis: Using a decentralized innovative wastewater technologies, such as small membrane bioreactors (MBRs), to gain green-building certification credit points.

Application:The certified BioBarrier® MBR and BioBarrier® HSMBR® System treat wastewater to higher standards that allows for onsite water reuse.

Finishing the Project was Easy

Working with the Bio-Microbics staff the design plans were sent and submitted to the developer.  Within days, the project had the prestigious “green-building” logo on it. And on his desk was a celebratory decanter of 30-year single-malt Scotch. Grinning broadly, the developer had delivered it himself as soon as they’d been notified of the certification.

Three weeks later, Alan was standing at the construction site overseeing the initial stages. The workers had begun installing the BioBarrier® system. Alan did a double-take when he saw who was with them.

Carrying the system’s air blower over his shoulder was Robust! Alan watched as Robust installed the blower while the other workers installed the system’s SaniTEE® and other parts. Occasionally, the workers would mention something and look back at Robust for affirmation, to which Robust would respond with a nod or a thumbs-up.  When they had finished installing the system, Alan walked over to Robust and extended his hand.
A Robust Feeling of Thanks

Bio-Microbics BOTS“To what do we owe the pleasure, Robust? I’m Alan, the architect for this project.”

“Pleasure’s mine, Alan. I was in the States this week, so I figured I could be here for the installation. Thanks for going with Bio-Microbics, by the way.”

“Thank you for giving me the idea. I was actually sitting in my office, trying to think of the right system, when you flew past my window.”

Robust laughed and rubbed the back of his head. “You saw me? You must have been up early.  I usually do my speed runs at first light so I don’t alarm folks. I wasn’t too close, was I? You don’t know how hard it was, getting permits to fly that low.”

“No, no, you were fine,” laughed Alan. “But you said you were in the States this week? You do a lot of traveling?”

“Yeah, all around the world.”  Robust said, as he stretched his back. “Well, I’ll let you get back to it, Alan. I’ve got some R&D to do back at the warehouse. But let me know how it works out once the place is up and running.”

“All right, thanks…hey, before you go…can I get a picture with you?”

Later that day, Alan push-pinned the photo onto his bulletin board, right next to his vacation photo of the Fallingwater house.
