Landfill Leachate Removals by Andersons Waste

Landfill Leachate Removal

Leachate waste is a liquid that is produced when water percolates through waste in landfill sites and reacts with the decomposing materials. The risk to public health and the environment from the micro-organisms and toxic substances (including ammonia and nitrogen) that can be found in leachate are high.

Commercial Sewage Tanks and Septic Tank emptying

Sewage Tanks: Septic Tank and Cesspool Emptying

If you have a septic tank or cesspool at your premises, you need to be aware that it needs to be emptied on a regular basis. Most empties are done on a yearly basis (as recommended by The Environment Agency). This can help reduce the risk of overflowing tanks, blockages, soak-away problems and sometimes smells!

Why liquid waste treatment is so important

Why liquid waste treatment is so important

All forms of liquid waste need to be treated to make the liquid suitable to be discharged into the water course. This waste could be sewage, dairy washings, brewery waste, leachate, contaminated ponds, oil, grease, ink washings, petroleum products and many more. Different types of waste need to be treated in different ways; for example a commercial sewage treatment plant will perform differently when compared to a treatment plant that treats petroleum waste. It is essential to send your waste to the correct treatment plant. If you send your waste to the wrong type of treatment plant then it can either damage the treatment plant and/or not get treated properly.

What happens to household sewage?

The sewage from your house either runs through the pipes/sewers to a commercial sewage treatment plant or, if you live in a more rural area, it will go to a septic tank near your house. This septic tank will then need to be emptied once a year and the sewage should be taken to a commercial sewage treatment plant in a tanker lorry. This means that no sewage should be getting into the watercourse without being thoroughly treated first.

When the sewage arrives at the treatment plant it passes through a variety of different treatment techniques; one of the first ones is to pass all the sewage through some screens which act like sieves to remove anything large and unwanted- clothing, tampons etc. After this there are various stages that help clean the water and leave it incredibly pure. To fully understand the process you can watch The Secret Science of Sewage on BBC iPlayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000t8zl which gives an incredibly good summary of how a commercial sewage treatment plant works. In a nutshell though it is a very organic process that doesn’t involve lots of chemicals; a sewage treatment plant is a natural and living ecosystem with lots of live bugs/bacteria that break down all the “nasties”. So if you add unwanted waste streams then those bugs are unable to break it down and may even kill/damage the bugs.

Why are the water companies discharging raw sewage into Britain’s rivers?

Commercial sewage treatment plants have a capacity beyond which they no longer work; i.e. they can only process so much waste in a given time frame. This means that when it rains heavily there is a risk that sewage will back-up into people’s houses because the sewage treatment plant hasn’t got the capacity to take in more waste. In this scenario the sewage treatment plants are permitted to release untreated wastewater into the watercourse to prevent the whole system becoming overloaded which would lead to further problems. 

What does the Andersons Waste Treatment plat do?

At Andersons Waste Treatment we have a de-watering plant which effectively separates out the solids from the liquids. We are only permitted to take in certain waste streams; if it falls outside of our permit then we will take the waste directly to the nearest commercial sewage treatment plant so it won’t contaminate our de-watering plant. All the waste that we take in eventually goes to the water company’s commercial treatment plant (either by sewer or by tanker) where it passes through all the same technologies as household waste.

What happens to our sewage? Commercial Waste Treatment Plant

What happens to our sewage? Commercial Waste Treatment Plant

What happens to our sewage? 

All sewage in the UK legally has to go to a commercial sewage treatment plant where it is treated and then the clean water returns to the watercourse. Sewage has all sorts of toxins in that need to be removed from the water before it can be released; this happens in a commercial sewage treatment plant. The sewage arrives at the treatment plant via the nationwide sewer infrastructure or via a liquid waste haulier.

What is a commercial sewage treatment plant?

It is a place that sewage and other forms of wet waste goes to in order to be made clean. Most of the commercial sewage treatment plants in the UK are owned by the water companies like Wessex Water https://www.wessexwater.co.uk/ , Thames Water https://www.thameswater.co.uk/ , Severn Trent https://www.stwater.co.uk/ etc. These water utility companies are regulated by the Environment Agency who give them permits to operate. Commercial sewage treatment plants require a large geographical footprint and cost hundreds of millions of pounds to build as well as a lot of ongoing management and maintenance costs.

How does a commercial sewage treatment plant work?

Firstly, the liquid waste passes through a series of screens which remove anything that that can’t be removed by biological and chemical treatment. An example of this would be tampons, clothes, stones and wood. This waste will eventually be taken to landfill. Once these items have been removed the waste then goes onto the next stage of the commercial sewage treatment plant. The waste passes through a series of different chambers where different natural processes engage in removing the toxins from the waste. One of the methods used is to allow different types of bacteria into the waste; these bacteria then eat up the toxins and other nasties in the waste. Another method is to pump oxygen into the waste which also helps to clean the waste. 

At the end of the process the commercial sewage treatment plant is left with a variety of different outputs. The most important of which is clean water which discharges the clean water into the local watercourse; this may be a river or a stream or the sea. This water is now harmless and poses no risk to the environment. The other main output is called “cake” (but is also known as bio solids) and it is a solid sludge that is a good form of natural fertilizer, soil conditioner and an excellent source of organic matter which can be spread onto agricultural land. This helps to improve the circular economy and reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

Andersons Waste Management is a liquid waste haulier with an exceptional fleet of tankers and drivers based in the Bristol area but we operate all around the Southwest. We are open 24/7 and can take your liquid waste to a commercial sewage treatment plant where it can be properly treated. Once we collect the waste from your site it becomes our responsibility and we provide waste transfer notices to ensure we are compliant with the Environment Agency and the local water authority.

Liquid Waste Collection for your event

Liquid Waste Collection for your event

The event management industry creates a lot of waste; this waste comes is in multiple shapes and sizes. Some examples of this are Glastonbury which produces the following types of waste: sewage, shower waste, tents, bottles, cups, wood, food, chairs, wet wipes, plates and much more. Thanks to the excellent green initiatives at Glastonbury a lot of this waste is recycled and repurposed. For example some of the food goes to local charities and bottles are recycled. Here is a short video of what happens at Glastonbury in order to reduce the amount of waste created https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXKbgBbD5Qo 

However, there is a lot of liquid waste that needs to be collected from the site and taken away for proper treatment and disposal. This waste is generated by many different sources but mainly toilets, showers, bars and kitchens. This water is not allowed into the local watercourse as it would be very polluting to the natural environment. 

What happens to liquid waste generated at events?

Throughout the event this liquid waste is stored in some very large steel containers underground and then tanker lorries come to the venue whenever possible to remove the liquid waste. It can be difficult to get large tanker lorries into live events due to the accessibility problems. However, often event organisers leave some roads clear for access for emergency services like ambulances and liquid waste disposal.

Once the event is collected in a liquid waste tanker it is transported to the nearest sewage treatment plant where it will pass through a series of processes to remove all the toxins, contaminants, and nasties. Once it has passed through all these systems, the water will be released into the water course as clean fresh water with no potential for pollution.

Andersons Waste Management provides liquid waste collection services to several events in the UK. We have sent several 6000-gallon articulated lorries to Glastonbury Festival https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/  both during and after the event as well as other size tankers to Love Saves the Day, Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Tokyo World Festival https://www.tokyoworld.org/ , Events at the Downs, and the Bristol Harbour Festival https://www.bristolharbourfestival.co.uk/  The event organisers usually book in their liquid waste removal requirements well in advance which allows us to prepare for the irregular hours of event work. For example, at some events there are no vehicle movements allowed during the day due to the size of the crowds so we have to come at night or very early in the morning when the festival goers are sleeping.

Sometimes unforeseen emergencies appear such as heavy rain which means there is often a requirement for more tankers at short notice to remove excess rainwater. The Andersons team will always help out when possible, we are on call 24/7 so normally we can help out with any emergency liquid waste collections, please do call us on 01454 222888 and we will do our best to sort out any liquid waste collections you may need. We have our own waste treatment plant which can take certain types of liquid waste and it can also be opened when other water treatment plants are closed.

Commercial Liquid Removal - Commercial Sewer and Drain Repairs

Commercial Liquid Removal - Commercial Sewer and Drain Repairs

The UK has a large infrastructure of sewers and drains which transport sewage and rainwater to the wastewater treatment works. When there is a lot of heavy rain the sewers and drains sometimes overflow which cause flooding. The water companies who own the sewers spend millions of pounds per year on sewer and drain repairs. This is to try and alleviate the damage caused by flooding. Our commercial sewer and drain infrastructure is very old now. If you combine the age of the sewers and the population growth plus more stormy weather due to climate change then the outcome is going to be more flooding situations which require large tankers to help.

We were recently contacted by the Filta Group https://www.filta.co.uk/ who supply, service and maintain stormwater pumping stations, individual pumps, floats and alarm systems to ask our availability to attend a local pub in Bristol. The pub had flooded due to the amount of rainfall in the area and a problem with the pumping station. Once the pumping station broke down the excess water could not be pumped away and it started to build up in the surrounding area. In order for them to repair the commercial sewer and drainage system they needed an enormous amount of water to be removed. At the time of the enquiry the customer had never used us before and had to set up an account. Once the account forms were back a few hours later, we swiftly dispatched a tanker at 4pm the same day to assist their engineers. When we arrived on site, we could see the extent of the damage. The pub is located next to a large green space alongside a lake which had filled to capacity and become a flood risk. Due to the location, the pub has its own flood defence system in place to prevent flooding but even that couldn’t stop the rainwater. The water had gone over the defence system and flooded into the pub and completely filled their cellar which became unsafe and unusable. Our driver arrived in a 4,000 gallon tanker to try and hold the levels back, that evening we took 2 x 4,000 gallons back to our own wastewater facility for treatment. The Andersons Waste Treatment facility is open for much longer hours than most wastewater treatment facilities which helps with flooding caused at night. After taking 8,000 gallons it came to light that we were going to be unable to clear all the water and the customer asked us to stop. We then rearranged another day to try again after the rainfall had stopped and the land had started to dry up. We removed another 4,000 gallons which gave the customer some breathing space to have pumps fitted by their engineers. 

These sorts of problems are only going to increase as our infrastructure becomes more and more out of date, the storms increase in quantity and rainwater volume thanks to climate change and the water companies continue to underinvest in their facilities. With this in mind there will be a growing demand for commercial sewer and drain repairs as well as tanker companies who will be needed to remove the excess liquid waste. Please call Andersons Waste Management on 01454 222888 and we will do our best to sort out any liquid waste collections.

what is a grease trap commercial sewage and grease trap emptying

what is a grease trap commercial sewage and grease trap emptying

What is a Grease Trap/interceptor?

A Grease trap is a receptacle into which wastewater containing oil, grease or fat flows through before entering the sewer system. It is used to prevent these oils and fats from blocking up the sewers and creating fatbergs. They are often used in commercial kitchens which use a lot of cooking oils.

There are lots of hospitality companies and buildings that have no mains sewer drainage facilities. This means that all the liquid waste that they produce on site will have to be stored in tanks and then those tanks need to be periodically emptied. This liquid waste includes sewage, wastewater and commercial kitchen grease trap or interceptor waste. It is illegal to let this sort of waste enter the natural watercourse so the waste needs to be disposed of properly in a licenced waste treatment facility. Often hotels will be built in secluded areas where there is no drainage to a sewer so lots of these hotels will have large wastewater storage tanks around the facility. The liquid waste sometimes needs to be pumped to these tanks and when these pumps fail the hotel may face temporary closure. Often they will pump the waste water to one tank and the interceptor waste to another tank.

We recently had a problem like this at one of our regular customers called Tortworth Court Hotel https://www.devere.co.uk/tortworth-court/ We regularly empty 4000 gallons of sewage on schedule from Tortworth Court based in Gloucestershire. All their liquid waste is pumped from around the hotel grounds into some large storage tanks. The site relies on the pumps in order to get the waste into these tanks. One morning Andersons Waste Management received a call from Tortworth advising that the pumps had stopped working and that daily tankering would be required to keep their sewage levels down and the hotel operational. We covered this demand until the engineers had identified the fault and arranged the appropriate repairs. 

We also regularly empty their industrial grease tanks from their commercial kitchens. We remove around 2,000 gallons of kitchen grease on a monthly basis. Having the tanks emptied on a regular basis keeps the tanks clean and in good working order. This reduces the chances of blockages caused by the build-up of fat which, in turn, reduces the risk of the kitchens being closed down.

Sometimes unforeseen emergencies appear such as heavy rain or pumps failing or larger quantities of people on site. All of which mean there is often a requirement for more tankers at short notice to remove excess liquid waste. The Andersons team will always help out when possible, we are on call 24/7 so normally we can help out with any emergency liquid waste collections, please do call us on 01454 222888 and we will do our best to sort out any liquid waste collections you may need.

Commercial Waste Oil Disposal for Ships and Boats

Commercial Waste Oil Disposal for Ships and Boats

Ships often use sea water to act as ballast. If the ship is working well then the crew can release the clean sea water back into the sea when they want to raise the ship. However, if that sea water becomes contaminated with commercial waste oil then the water can no longer go back into the sea. In this scenario the ship’s crew will need to engage a commercial waste oil disposal company to dispose of the sea water contaminated with commercial waste oil. 

How to dispose of commercial waste oil?

When a company has any liquid waste that becomes contaminated with commercial waste oil it is crucial that this waste doesn’t enter the natural environment as it can be extremely polluting. If you have to dispose of commercial waste oil then you need to ensure it is taken away and the surrounding area is cleaned properly by professionally trained individuals. Waste oil needs to be disposed of in a waste treatment plant where all toxins can be removed properly therefore ensuring no pollution escapes into the watercourse. Commercial waste oil needs to be taken away in a tanker which can be provided by several companies.

Andersons Waste Management took an emergency call from Osprey Shipping https://osprey.group/ based in Bristol Dock Yard. They called to report that a hydraulic pipe had split within the ship’s hull. The hull was full of sea water to lower the ballast and now, due to the oil leak, this sea water couldn’t be pumped back out to the sea due to contamination and threat to marine life. We reacted quickly to the customers requirement and had an emergency tanker onsite within 2 hours and a team of operatives to support and clean. Upon arrival we were directed to the barge and provided with their relevant health and safety requirements. Our team then kitted up with life jackets and PPE to board the barge safely and pump 78 tonnes of water contaminated with oil. After collecting all the oil into our tankers, we took it to the oil recovery disposal point. After the waste was removed, we washed down the area with a high powered jetter to ensure the area was clean and free from any contaminants. 

Andersons Waste Management is based in Avonmouth which means we are ideally positioned to help with any liquid waste problems that arise at the Bristol Port, Bristol Marina or any other ports and marinas near Bristol. We also go to Newport and Cardiff when customers have problems. We operate 24/7 so we can always be on hand to help in emergencies and out of our work. We have our own waste treatment plant which can take certain types of liquid waste and it can also be opened when other water treatment plants are closed. Sadly we can’t take any commercial waste oils into our treatment plant but we do know where to take oils and we will do so as part of our duty of care. We provide Waste Transfer Notices to all our clients to provide security that all waste has been disposed of in a compliant manner.

Commercial Waste Oil Disposal - what you need to know

Commercial Waste Oil Disposal - what you need to know

What is commercial Oil?

There are several types of industry that generate/use a lot of commercial waste oil that needs to be correctly disposed of and treated. There are different types of oil from motor oil, crude oil, cooking oil/grease. Here are some examples of the industries that use commercial oil: shipping, restaurants and hotels. 

How to dispose of your commercial waste oil?

If waste oil is disposed of into the sewers, then it can lead to blockages and eventually “fatbergs” which are very costly and difficult to remove. Commercial waste oil disposal requires a tanker to collect the oil from site and then transport it to the correct type of treatment facility where it is made safe. Most oils are highly flammable and therefore must be treated with a lot of caution. Normally the best course of action when trying to dispose of commercial waste oil is to call a company whose staff are fully trained to deal with it and let them handle it. Often you can store the waste oil on site in safe tanks and then have those tanks periodically emptied by a company like Andersons Waste Management.

A recent case study at Andersons Waste Management was a local fried chicken takeaway restaurant called Miss Millie’s https://missmillies.co.uk/  Any restaurant that fries as much chicken as them will have large quantities of cooking oil that needs to be taken offsite and disposed of. If they were to dispose of the oil into the drains on site then they would have eventually blocked their own drains and may well have been fined for not taking duty of care with their commercial oil/grease. Miss Millie’s called up Andersons to see if we could help with their commercial waste oil disposal at one of their facilities in Bristol. During opening hours they store their commercial waste oil in secure tanks to ensure none of it goes down the drain. Then once the tanks are full they need a tanker to come and empty them to disposed of the waste properly. We gave them a price per visit for one of our tankers which was based on the volume of waste oil collected. We now send a tanker there every week to empty the oil from the tanks and bill them based on how much oil was collected. The oil is then taken to a waste treatment facility that is designed to safely and compliantly dispose of the oil. They no longer have to worry about calling us up as it is part of our weekly schedule.

After a few weeks of working successfully with this Miss Millie’s they asked us to provide the same service for all of their restaurants in the Bristol and southwest areas. They have also asked Andersons Waste Management to support them with their internal and eternal drainage issues to ensure that blockages don’t develop and avoid any disruption towards their business.  Andersons is on call 24/7 so please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we can solve any liquid waste disposal problem.

Removing Sewage from your business if you don't have your drains

Removing Sewage from your business if you don't have your drains

Lots of businesses don’t have their drains connected to a sewer which means their sewage needs to be taken away for treatment. Lots of venues will have all their commercial sewage running into tanks on their site. Some venues are connected to the sewer, but they need a functioning pump to transport the commercial sewage to the sewer. If the pump breaks down or becomes faulty then this can lead to a build-up of sewage. 

A recent case study of commercial sewage services at Andersons Waste Management is the Thelka music venue/night club. In the harbour of Bristol there is a boat called Thekla which has been converted into a 400 people capacity nightclub. Normally the commercial sewage from their toilets, kitchens and bars goes to tanks within the boat and then this sewage is pumped regularly to the mains sewer. However, the Thekla pump has recently broken down which means their commercial sewage tanks are not draining away and leaving them with a problem. Commercial sewage is not allowed to be tipped into the seas or any other natural water course; it has to be taken to a treatment facility to be properly treated and have the toxins removed. 

Thekla https://www.theklabristol.co.uk/ called up Andersons Waste Management and told us about the problem. Once they had told us all the details, we decided that the Thekla night club needed 1,000 gallons of commercial sewage removed from the venue every day. This would ensure that their tanks always had enough sewage capacity for one night. Consequently, an Andersons Waste Management commercial sewage services tanker goes to the Thekla boat every day and removed 1,000 gallons of sewage. Without this commercial sewage service the Thekla boat would not be able to operate until their sewage pumps have been replaced which would cause jobs to be lost and partygoers to be left disappointed. The commercial sewage removed from the boat is then taken to the Andersons Waste treatment plant to be disposed of in a completely compliant manner. Once the pumps have been replaced there will be no need for a tanker as the commercial sewage will then be pumped into the mains sewer which leads directly to the treatment plant.

Thekla is within the Bristol Clean Air Zone which comes into force on the 25th November 2022. This means that any tanker lorry coming to remove the sewage should have the very newest engines to ensure carbon dioxide emissions are kept as low as possible. At Andersons Waste Management we always keep our fleet up to date with brand new vehicles, hence we can take our new tankers into the Clean Air Zone and not have to pay any fines. We are at the forefront of the drive to reduce carbon emissions and as soon as there is an opportunity to buy a tanker lorry that produces no carbon dioxide emissions then we will be buying one. Sadly, the technology isn’t quite there yet. The aim is for Andersons Waste Management to be carbon net zero as soon as possible.

Pump Chamber Emptying

Pump Chamber Emptying

Pump chambers / pump stations are often used where waste from a building cannot reach a main sewer sometimes due to gravity or insufficient falls of the drainage. As a result, the waste is directed to a central point which is either a pumping station or wet well.
The station is generally lower than the sewer system, thus a pump is required to direct the waste up towards the main sewer system. Regular emptying/cleaning ensures the systems continue working. On some occasions pumps may fail so urgent emptying is needed, we can arrange this too.

Navigating Your Commercial Waste Disposal Responsibilities: Tips and Best Practices

Navigating Your Commercial Waste Disposal Responsibilities: Tips and Best Practices

All businesses have commercial waste disposal responsibilities that are unavoidable and strictly enforced by law. No commercial wastewater or sewage is allowed into the water course so any business that produces such waste is obliged to dispose of it in a compliant manner. Most businesses are connected to the mains sewer system which can take care of a lot of wastes such as sewage but there are lots of businesses and venues that are not on the sewer network and therefore they have commercial waste disposal responsibilities.

Who has commercial waste disposal responsibilities?

There are many businesses that have commercial waste disposal responsibilities, a prime example of this is the events industry which produces a lot of commercial waste that requires disposal. This is because so many events use a greenfield site that has no mains drainage which leaves the event organiser with large commercial waste disposal responsibilities. Events like flower shows, car shows, agricultural shows and festivals have thousands of people on site for several days using temporary infrastructure- all of which needs to be disposed of responsibly. This waste can be toilet waste, catering waste, Kitchen waste, water-feature waste etc. It is the responsibility of the event organiser to dispose of all this waste in a compliant manner.

An example of this is Bath Racecourse https://www.bath-racecourse.co.uk/which has no mains drainage on site. The venue hosts horse racing, Christmas parties, weddings, charitable events, Covid vaccine centre and many other types of events. This means that at each event, their customers produce an enormous amount of commercial waste which needs to be disposed of responsibly. They called up Andersons Waste management to ask us if we could help. All their sewage and commercial waste water goes into large holding tanks on site which need emptying after each event to prevent them from overflowing and polluting the surrounding areas and water course. After finding out all the information and the location of all their tanks we arranged to send in two artic tankers on the days after their events to remove up to 12,000 gallons of waste at a time.If the event is smaller and therefore produces less waste then we will often send a smaller tanker which will reduce the price for the customer.

We then take this waste to the Andersons Waste Management wastewater treatment facility where it is properly treated and disposed of. This process ensures that the racecourse doesn’t become waterlogged, the hospitality areas have capacity in their storage tanks and the venue is compliant with the EnvironmentAgency.

At Andersons Waste Management we have a wide range of tankers that we send to different customers to ensure we can take care of all their commercial waste disposal responsibilities. The smallest is a 2,000-gallon tanker and the largest is 6,000-gallon articulated tanker. All our tankers and drivers are fully compliant and can take care of all your commercial waste disposal responsibilities. We can send tankers during the day or at night if it makes your event run more smoothly.

Maximising Efficiency and Sustainability with Commercial Wastewater Solutions

Maximising Efficiency and Sustainability with Commercial Wastewater Solutions

If you have any commercial wastewater or commercial sewage that needs disposing, then you will need to dispose of it correctly. Examples of commercial wastewater include rainwater, dairy washings, leachate and brewery waste. All commercial wastewater and sewage need to be taken to a treatment plant where it is properly treated and the toxins are removed from it. Due to its liquid nature commercial wastewater can only be transported in a tanker lorry. Tanker Lorries vary in size from 700 gallons of capacity to 6,000gallons.

Wy use a wastewater collection service?

If you have any commercial wastewater then call a commercial wastewater service company who will arrange to send a suitably sized tanker which will collect the waste and take it to a treatment plant to be disposed of in a compliant manner. As climate change increases the incidence of storms and heavy rain there is increased risk of large downpours falling on your site which if you don’t have storm drains, can lead to flooding and a build-up of commercial wastewater.

A recent case study at Andersons Waste Management involved a national house builder who is currently building 30 houses near Chippenham https://www.wainhomes.co.uk/developments/the-bluebells/. The customer has built a lot of the houses already but there are still lots to be built. But some of the vital infrastructure like the storm drains and house drains are not connected to the relevant mains sewers just yet. This means that all the commercial wastewater on site (rainwater, shower water, dishwasher water, washing machine water, sewage etc) has to be collected in tanks onsite and then taken away to be treated as it is not allowed to enter the water course.

The customer called the Andersons Waste Management office and told us about the problem and asked us for a solution. After hearing all the details and taking samples of the commercial wastewater we came up with a solution. We arranged to send a 3,000-gallon tanker to their site twice a week to take away the commercial wastewater in their tank. When it rains heavily the tanker goes in for an extra visit to ensure the customer is kept happy. The tanker driver then takes the commercial wastewater to a local waste treatment plant where it is properly treated and the toxins are removed. Once the water has been fully treated the pure and clean water is released back into the watercourse. The result of this is that the house builder has a compliant site that is not waterlogged with rainwater, no commercial wastewater is getting into the watercourse and the sewage from the houses is being taken away and treated properly. The solution detailed above helps to keep our rivers, streams and wildlife safe from commercial wastewater.
