SEWAGE SYSTEM FOR WALNUT GROVE, GA
Walnut Grove Land Application System
What is a “land application” system?
A land application system provides sewer treatment through a series of natural anaerobic and aerobic processes. While a conventional sewage treatment plant relies on massive doses of chemicals to “treat” sanitary waste before discharging it into a stream, the land application method relies on natural bacteriological processes to clean the wastewater before it is applied to the land.
Water from this process is applied directly to the land by irrigation methods, thus allowing the living filter of soil and growing vegetation to continue the treatment process and provide valuable soil nutrients.
What's so great about this method?
Less costly to build
Less costly to maintain and operate
No sludge by-product
No discharge into waterways
Complete compliance with the EPA Clean Water Act
Is odor a problem?
Walnut Grove residents are very familiar with sewer odors along Highway 138 in a neighboring County. This was a primary concern of the City Council. The land application system method was selected by the City Council based on research of similar facilities. This should avoid any problem with odors.
How does the new land application system benefit the Walnut Grove?
