Small Wastewater Systems
Many small and rural communities struggle with aging or inadequate wastewater treatment systems or do not have access to basic wastewater services. Small communities have 10,000 or fewer people and an average daily wastewater flow of fewer than 1 million gallons.
Wastewater is water used for various purposes around a community, including sewage, stormwater, and all other water used by residences, businesses, and industries. They require treatment before it returns to lakes, rivers, and streams to protect the waterbody’s and community’s health, such as:
A decentralized wastewater system treats sewage from homes and businesses near the source where wastewater is generated rather than collecting and transporting waste to a centralized treatment plant. Decentralized systems can provide an effective, low-cost alternative to a centralized system. Centralized systems may be impractical in some situations because of distance, terrain, or other factors.
Decentralized systems play a significant role in wastewater treatment in small communities. Various decentralized technologies exist, ranging from individual septic systems to cluster systems that serve multiple properties, to advanced treatment systems that remove pollutants such as nutrients.
Nearly one in four households in the United States depends on an individual septic system or small community cluster system to treat wastewater.
EPA’s Septic (Decentralized/Onsite) Program provides general and technical information, funding sources, training opportunities, guidance, educational outreach materials, and case studies. These resources help homeowners, government officials, and industry professionals design and manage cost-effective decentralized systems that meet public health and water quality standards.
Centralized systems are public sewer systems. They treat wastewater in a single, centralized location. Sewers collect municipal wastewater from homes, businesses, and industries and deliver it to a treatment plant for processing. After treating wastewater, it is reused or discharged to the surface or groundwater.
Early in the nation’s history, people living in cities and the countryside used cesspools and privies to dispose of domestic wastewater. Cities began to install wastewater collection systems in the late nineteenth century because of increasing awareness of the waterborne disease and the popularity of indoor plumbing and flush toilets.
The use of sewage collection systems brought dramatic improvements in public health. Today, approximately 16,000 municipal wastewater treatment facilities serve over 75 percent of the population nationwide.
Small Community Challenges and Needs
Many small communities face significant barriers to building and maintaining effective wastewater treatment services, including:
Some communities face additional barriers:
We have reviewed several reports and have prepared plans that will adequately address them in short, including the challenges and needs facing small, rural, tribal communities and border areas where there is a lack of access to drinking water and wastewater services
A lack of clean water infrastructure in tribal communities threatens residents’ health, who rely on local wildlife and fish for food and the nearest water body for drinking water.
