Septage receiving stations provide municipalities with an opportunity to intelligently manage trucked liquid waste streams entering their treatment infrastructure while simultaneously earning revenue from disposal fees.
But no two septage receiving stations are exactly alike.
Each station serves a unique client base and accepts a distinct blend of trucked liquid waste streams.
For example, some stations receive septage from sources that traditionally contain high concentrations of fat, oil, and grease (FOG), while others receive septage that require careful monitoring of pH to avoid potential damage to downstream equipment.
Municipalities should consider selecting and installing a custom automated septage receiving station designed to meet their specific needs without requiring an excessive amount of maintenance and upkeep.
By customizing the features included with new wastewater receiving stations and employing system automation wherever feasible, station owners can ensure that their newly installed septage receiving units are able to function properly under the unique set of conditions they will face.
Here are just a few examples of benefits associated with incorporation of custom, automated features into wastewater receiving stations:
- Use of automated billing systems can allow for accurate measurement of septage quantities and documentation of specific water quality constituents, such as pH, conductivity, or other parameters of concern.
- Installation of treatment processes for collection of rocks and grit in solids-laden wastewater can protect downstream system components, while the use of automated flushing for maintenance of these processes can significantly reduce maintenance requirements.
- Automated heating/cooling systems designed for specific climactic conditions can provide maintenance of suitable station temperatures for receipt of waste year-round.
Consideration of site-specific operational requirements is essential when selecting and installing a new septage receiving station.
Choosing the right septage receiving station design and automation setup can help increase revenues and reduce operational costs.
