On-site waste treatment, or septic system, is the management of household-produced wastewater that is flushed or rinsed down the drain.  The wastewater produced in many homes is not pumped or gravity transported to a wastewater treatment plant, but rather enters a septic tank on the same property as the home.  This site will provide information about on-site waste treatment and how to take care of the on-site waste treatment (or septic) system.  The following image was copied from the Utah State University Extension webpage on Water Quality and shows the major parts of the septic system.
