Flushing toilets enable most Americans to make their own waste disappear as if by magic, but most would be hard-pressed to answer this simple question: When you flush, where does it go?
Septic tank owners, about 20 percent of Americans, are most likely to be able to give an accurate answer, because they’re responsible for the maintenance of their own sewage-disposal systems. A flush from one of their toilets sends wastewater to a tank buried on their property, where the waste products separate into solid and liquid layers and partially decompose. The liquid layer flows out of the tank and into a drainfield that disperses it into the soil, wherenaturally occurring microbes remove harmful bacteria, viruses, and nutrients. The solid layer stays behind in the form of sludge that must be pumped out periodi…

EPA SWMM 5.1.010 Build 5.1.010 Update with Images

------------------------ Build 5.1.010 (08/05/15) ------------------------- SourceEngine Updates: 1. A modified version of Green-Ampt infiltration (MODIFIED GREEN AMPT) was added that no longer redistributes upper zone moisture deficit during low rainfall events. The original authors of SWMM's Green-Ampt model have endorsed this modified version. It will produce more infiltration for storm events that begin with low rainfall intensities, such as the SCS design storm distributions. 2. A new type of weir, a ROADWAY weir, has been added. It models roadway overtopping using the FHWA HDS-5 method and would typically be used in parallel with a culvert conduit. 3. Rule premises can now test whether a link has been open (or closed) for a specific period of time. See the Help file for more details. 4. Unsaturated hydraulic conductivity ("K") was added to the list of variables that can be used in a user-supplied groundwater flow equation…
