state Environmental Protection Agency
- How often the system will be serviced
A residential septic system including:
Bio-Kinetic wastewater management system
An effluent disposal system (may require a Norweco
residential pump dosing station)
- An aerobic wastewater treatment system such as the Singulair
Model 960 wastewater treatment system
- A raw sewage pump station such as a Lift-Rail pump station
or a residential pump station to move the raw wastewater to a central collection system
for treatment at a remote location

Residential systems treat domestic
wastewater from an individual home. Typical flow volume ranges from 250 to
1,500 gallons per day (GPD). The single source of wastewater can aggravate the treatment
problems common to all wastewater treatment applications.
These include hydraulic overloading or
underloading, organic overloading or underloading, and low, sustained, variable and
intermittent flow rates. Residential systems are challenging because
most do not receive regular maintenance.
