About your Septic System
Do you know where the water goes when you empty a sink or
flush a toilet? If your home is in a city, the wastewater most likely goes into
a municipal sanitary sewer system to a sewage treatment plant. If your home is
located in a rural area or a small community, you are likely one of the 25 per
cent of Canadians whose wastewater is treated by a septic system (also referred
to as an onsite wastewater system). A septic system treats your sewage right in
your own yard and releases the treated effluent back into the groundwater via
your weeping bed.
How Does My Septic System Work?
A properly functioning septic system receives all the wastewater created from
household use (toilets, showers, sinks, dishwasher, washing machine, and so on),
treats the wastewater to a safe level, and returns the treated effluent to the
groundwater system. A conventional septic system is composed of a septic tank
and a soil filter called a weeping bed. A weeping bed may also be called a
drain field, an absorption field, a leaching bed, or a tile field.
