Scholarcy highlights

  • Six of 13 target compounds were detected in effluent from at least one septic system
  • The organic wastewater contaminants concentrations were significantly lower in effluent after sand filtration or aerobic treatment as compared with effluent that had not undergone advanced treatment
  • These data indicate that septic systems using advanced treatment can reduce organic wastewater contaminants in treated effluent to similar concentrations as municipal wastewater treatment plant. Password Changed Successfully
