Multi-family housing, where multiple separate residential units are contained within
one building, has traditionally required access to gravity sewer and
favorable zoning regulation that allows higher density. However,
today’s demand for affordable housing and development in unique areas,
such as mountain or beach resorts, requires planned communities that
may not have immediate access to central sewer. In such areas,
decentralized systems are the solution, because they support density as
well as address environmental and economic concerns.
A decentralized system requires vastly lower capital outlays — as well as much lower
costs for operation, maintenance, and labor — than does the typical gravity
sewer. With installation of a decentralized system, residents enjoy
superior service without financially burdening the community
for years to come.
Chris Hartman, an Orenco Engineered Systems Dealer with Jensen Precast, provided an AdvanTex Treatment System for the owners of a beautiful property along Lake Almanor in Northern California. The system for Little Norway Osprey Cove (473 KB, PDF) blends into the surroundings, allowing the owners and tenants to take full advantage of their natural surroundings.
From on-lot interceptor tanks, only filtered liquid is
discharged through small-diameter, shallow
collection lines to common downstream treatment, whether that is a
neighborhood system or a municipal plant miles away.
Textile sheets in AdvanTex filter pods produce clear, high quality
effluent. Modular construction allows for phased installation of total
designs and manufactures control and monitoring panels for customers
all over the world. Our panels are used in water, wastewater, and industrial process applications.
