The septic system provides a crucial function, collecting, treating, and disposing of wastewater. Proper care and regular maintenance are essential. The typical septic system consists of a septic tank to capture solids and a disposal field to handle liquid wastes. The effluent runs through lateral lines or pipelines for distribution into the drain field. Tanks should be professionally inspected at least once every two years and usually require cleaning every three to five years. Preventative measures are crucial to effective and long-term performance.

Onsite Waste Treatment System
An onsite waste treatment system (OWTS) is commonly referred to as a septic system, lateral lines, private sewer or lagoon. Each of these is technically correct, but there are more than eight types and configurations of OWTS.
Did you know?
A soils morphology test is mandatory to properly design an OWTS system and submit a system permit. Percolation tests are no longer accepted by the state or authority having jurisdiction.
The soil conditions are the most important aspect of an OWTS system because the soil serves as a filter, exchanger and absorber.
The Kansas City region generally has high clay content soil or high-water tables that are not suited for basic septic and lateral systems.
A septic tank provides primary treatment by separating solids from the wastewater ensuring effluent entering the soil is clarified.
The most basic OWTS system consists of a properly sized septic tank and soil distribution piping either PVC pipes in gravel or chambers buried under the ground.
In soils that will not support a basic OWTS system, an alternative option is a septic tank and surface lagoon. Wind and sun provide for evaporation of effluent. Lagoons are cost effective alternatives to more advanced systems.
Certain soils with shallow horizons can utilize a low-pressure pipe (LPP) distribution system. The system consists of a septic tank, pumping chamber for pressure dosing, and a small diameter soil distribution piping system.
Soils that will not support any other system or as an alternative to other options, a high-pressure drip irrigation system can be installed.
The Environmental Protection Agency reports 20 percent of all homes in the United States depend on private on-site waste treatment systems.
Nearly one third of all new developments and homes are served by septic or decentralized treatment systems.
More than 60 million Americans are served by septic systems.
