Problem

Public concern was mounting over the lack of adequate wastewater treatment for the vast majority of homes in Fulton, Alabama. High groundwater levels contributed to septic system failures at some residences, while many others had no septic system at all.

Solution

A tenacious mayor researched and pursued the necessary funding all the way to Washington, D.C. In the end, he chose an Orenco Effluent Sewer followed by Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment System, because it was easy to maintain and offered a lower cost of operations than the other options.
