Sewage Solutions

Answering the call of nature

by Nick Grant, Mark Moodie & Chris Weedon



Rather than polluting watercourses with sewage, many ways exist to recycle it. Sewage Solutions explains such natural methods of treatment as reed beds, cess pits, water stabilization ponds, septic tanks and compost toilets, and also describes how to collect and recycle waste water. Whether connected to municipal drain systems or not, this is the guide for all interested in the complete process of sewage recycling.Note that this book originates from Europe and may contain measurement units, etc. not commonly used in the US.
