White papers, case studies and more
This white paper will help consumers identify and avoid toxins and contaminants to be more environmentally friendly and keep wastewater systems operating at full efficiency.
Integrated Water Management is a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water resources in an equitable manner without compromising vital ecosystems. This white paper dives into the Integrated Water Management process and reveals how communities and industries are addressing wastewater management into the future.
Today’s leading decentralized wastewater systems have closed that gap between the capabilities and performance of conventional wastewater treatment systems. Decentralized wastewater systems are pre-designed for collection, treatment, and dispersal/reuse of wastewater at or near the point of waste generation.
As water resources have been increasingly stressed by drought conditions, other shortages and overloaded municipal water treatment plants, water reuse and grey water have become two of the most common topics within the professional sector. This white paper takes a look at residential water reuse and some products that reduce water consumption.
A 2008 report from the National Research Council discovered that in urban areas runoff from roads carries more pollutants than plazas, courtyards, and similar hardscapes. This white paper identifies five options for an eco-friendly driveway, all of which can satisfy pervious surface requirements where they exist.
Why is pavement a water problem, and what does permeability have to do with urban or municipal planning? The answers have to do with water that falls from the sky and where it goes. This white paper takes a look at stormwater runoff, how it affects the environment, and identifies some products that are helping to address this issue.
Replacing a failed system never comes at a good time, and the cost can be several thousands of dollars.This white paper, sponsored by Bio-Microbics, looks at one alternative option to replacing a septic system.
Developing methods to treat and recycle our wastewater for safe reuse is paramount, especially as our world population continues to grow and contaminants affect our limited supplies of fresh groundwater. This white paper takes a look at membrane bioreactor systems (MBS), one of the wastewater treatment systems that is making water reuse possible.
Conventional sewer operations managed by small communities provide centralized treatment of wastewater of which residents are accustomed. But the expense of operating these systems as they expand with miles and miles of sewer lines is staggering. The cost of conventional...
Besides knowing what not to put in a septic system, it is critical to know what not to put above or around it. Being short-sighted on this responsibility can cost thousands of dollars in repair or replacement of your system....
Just as it is important to have your family recognize the significance of energy conservation to reduce your environmental footprint and home operating expense, an understanding of your septic systems requirements is essential. All septic systems are designed to process...
On average, every home discharges 250 gallons of waste water every day. While conservation efforts and knowing what not to put down drains reduces stress on septic systems, they can still fail for a number of reasons, potentially releasing everything...
Many communities are considering decentralized wastewater treatment and the economic and environmental advantages these types of systems can offer. Today, decentralized treatment can provide the safety and reliability of conventional large-scale treatment, and can also offer many additional benefits to communities.
Decentralized wastewater treatment can provide a long-term and cost-effective solution for communities.
Decentralized wastewater treatment can meet the triple bottom line of protecting the environment, being efficient, and contributing to community well-being
Decentralized wastewater treatment systems can protect the environment, public health, and water quality in homes and communities.
Bio-Microbics manufacturers proven wastewater and storm water treatment systems for decentralized communities.
RetroFast unique design system makes it optimal for minimal disrutpion during installation.
BioBarrier Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) is ideally suited for use with residential and small flow developments for reuse applications.
SaniTEE® Wastewater Screens SaniTEE® self-cleaning wastewater deflection screens (commonly known as septic tank effluent filters) are designed to reduce suspended solids discharged in septic tanks.
