What is a Septic System?

A septic system is an individual wastewater treatment system that uses the soil to treat wastewater. A septic system has two main parts, a holding tank and an absorption field. A third step can be added between the septic tank and the absorption field for further treatment. Sewage from the home enters into the septic tank where heavier solids settle out and scum rises to the surface. The water between the scum and solid layer enters into the absorption field where it trickles down into the soil.
