What Does A Soil Drain Field Do?

Your septic system is a mini Sewage Treatment System or ISTS located on your property. The Drainfield is a large component of most Minnesota septic systems. Wastewater generated from the household works it way through the Septic Tank and Drain Field. Since only about 50 percent of solid waste materials are broken down by the bacteria working inside of the septic tank, the Soil Absorption Area of the Drainage Field filters out the rest of the contaminants.


Why Do Septic Drainfields Fail?

One of the main reasons that a septic system can fail is by Overloading it with Wastewater. For a Drainfield to be effective it must have time to dry out. If it is constantly being saturated, it is likely to develop a Slimy Bacterial Mat (Biomat) along the trench walls. Water cannot pass through the biomat at a good rate leaving it Clogged.
