Presentation on Wastewater Treatment Systems

This video is a presentation by Mike Giggey of Wright Pierce and Andrew Gottlieb, Executive Director of the Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative (CCWPC) on October 27, 2010 at the Harwich Community Center. The presentation is based on a report produced for the CCWPC that evaluated and compared the costs of the following wastewater management systems:

  • Individual on-lot systems with and without nitrogen removal.
  • Cluster systems serving up to approximately 30 homes with aggregate wastewater flows less than 10,000 gallons per day (gpd).
  • Satellite systems serving from 30 to 1,000 homes (wastewater flows between 10,000 gpd and 300,000 gpd), intended to treat and dispose of wastewater from one area of a town.
  • Centralized systems which can provide for most or all of a town's wastewater management needs, and that might be suitable for serving portions of neighboring towns.
