Individual Sewage Treatment & Disposal System

How Septic Tanks Work Ham Lake MNMany homes located in the Ham Lake MN area rely on an Onsite Wastewater Treatment Structure for every day Sewage Disposal. Your Typical Septic System consists of an underground Septic Tank along with a Drainfield or some type of Soil Absorption Field. The way they work is based on a combination of Technology and Nature. Bacteria plays a large role in effectively removing or neutralizing harmful pathogens from waste produced from bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. CSI Custom Septic, Inc. provides many of the Sewer Services needed to Build, Install, Inspect and Repair several different types of Individual Sewage Treatment Systems (ISTS).


Inside Underground Septic Tank

In many cases, the Septic Tank is the first stop for plumbing waste leaving a Ham Lake MN home. This is where Organic Waste Material and used water begin the process of removing contaminants before they are allowed to re-enter the environment.

Bacteria living inside of the septic tank can do a good job of digesting organic matter. This is a Natural Sewage Treatment Process that gets help from Proven Technology when necessary.

The Septic Tank is designed to separate solids (Sludge) from liquids (Effluent) and floating matter (Scum). Fecal matter and other solids sink to the bottom of the tank. Floatable grease and oils rise to the top of the tank. Liquids collect in the middle layer before moving on to the next treatment phase.


Conventional Gravity Flow | Advanced Mound System

With a Conventional Gravity Flow Septic System, wastewater drains out of the septic tank through perforated pipes that allow liquids to seep into the soil, sand or other media. A Mound System usually has a pump that forces liquids up into a constructed mound where it trickles through the organic treatment media.


Soil Absorption Field

A Soil Treatment Area can also be called a Drainfield or Leach Field. Pretreated or partially treated wastewater seeps through soil in a shallow drainage field. Unsaturated soil works as a filtering component to naturally remove disease causing pathogens, viruses, nitrogen and other nutrients from the contaminated water.
