Fats and solids remain in the tank. Liquid, which has separated from heavier particles, flows into the disposal field whenever new raw effluent enters the tank. In the disposal field, the separated liquid continues to be treated by natural processes.
The type of disposal field depends on soil type, the slope of the section, vegetation and underlying rock.
Your septic tank is a living ecosystem where bacteria do the work of digesting and treating waste.
The contents of a healthy septic tank form 3 layers:
Bacteria break down some organic solids, which helps reduce the build-up of sludge.
Scum helps prevent odors escaping and stops air entering the tank.
In active new style wastewater treatment systems, the separated liquid flows into an additional aerated or other treatment chamber before entering the drainage field. Systems are more effective at turning the separated liquid into usable waste water because of the aerobic bacterial activity in this extra step. Consequently you should be able to use waste water from wastewater treatment systems in irrigation drip lines, if desired.
