Could your sewage system be polluting the local environment?

Sewage systems provide us with a safe and hygienic way to dispose of wastewater without polluting the environment. The effects of sewage on the environment are largely negative so you must ensure your sewage system is working correctly.

How does a sewage treatment plant work?

Sewage treatment plants are often installed in rural areas away from the main sewers. They break down the waste by circulating air using an electric motor - the air creates ideal conditions for bacteria to break down harmful chemicals in the waste, therefore purifying it and creating a clean liquid discharge. They are designed to produce wastewater that is pure and free of toxins.

So, how do you ensure your sewage system is not polluting the environment?

If sewage is only partially treated before being released into the environment then it can contaminate water and be harmful to wildlife, therefore it is essential you maintain your system properly. Signs that show your system might be polluting include sewage smells, pools of water, sludge, foam or lush weeds or grey fungus growing in your local river or stream.

To prevent this, you should:

  • Get your system serviced regularly by an engineer

  • Get the sludge emptied regularly

  • Do not flush sanitary items, wipes, nappies or similar items down the toilet

  • Do not put fats, oils or chemicals down the drain
