Woodstock Inn Brewery

Septic Preservation and the Woodstock Inn Brewery in North Woodstock, NH

The Woodstock Inn Brewery in North Woodstock, New Hampshire has had great success since its beginning in 1982 with only 4 rooms and a restaurant.  Two years after it opened, the owners reached over to LincolnWoodstock Inn Brewery to save a bit of that town’s past, its old train station. Sawed in half and carefully, if not memorably, transported a few miles away to the Inn, that station became the Woodstock Station, allowing the expansion of the kitchen and the dining room. In the mid-nineties the owners decided to enter into the almost non existent “craft” brewing world with a small 7 barrel brewery that is still in use today for new test runs as well as specialty beers only on tap at the Inn. Fast forward to today and the Brewery has expanded to a large 30 barrel production brewery, crafting more than a dozen year-round and seasonal beers available throughout New England.

 Septic Preservation was contacted because of issues with the wastewater arriving at the Woodstock wastewater treatment plant. The load and strength of the wastewater coming from the brewery has been overloading the treatment plant. This overload has caused the treatment plant to remove more solids per month than can be managed. The town has mandated that the brewery must pre-treat the outflow from the brewery and will charge the brewery thousands of dollars each month it is not in compliance. This made the incentive to treat the wastewater an easy decision as the return on investment would be relatively quick. If you are in White Mountains region, stop in the visit this beautiful historic Inn and Brewery.

Septic Preservation Testimonial

septic preservationAuto Wash, Elliot Maine

The Auto Wash in Eliot Maine has cleaned up their act. After being listed in an online New York Times article as the top water polluter in the state of Maine, the auto wash was in dire need of treatment to their wastewater.
Septic Preservation Services was able to review and analyze the multi faceted and complex issues causing pollutants to be discharged into the ground. The project was critically important due to the close proximity of sensitive wet lands. We were able to take the information gathered and design an onsite wastewater treatment system that solved the issues at hand. The issue was rather complex due to the type of waste generated by the car wash. A significant amount of the waste were solids including, dirt, salt, and road grime not terribly difficult to remove from the wastewater. The rest of the pollutants were soap, wax, oils, grease and other auto fluids. These proved to be more difficult to remove. After many tests we were able to organically treat the wastewater with a special bacteria developed with the ability to consume these organics. After treatment the auto wash is able to recycle the clean water back through the wash and reduce water consumption. This ability to recycle water has a significant impact on the environment and the amount of water discharged into it. With the Auto Wash’s close proximity to sensitive wet lands taking a green approach to the issue was crucial. The Auto wash is now one of the cleanest and greenest in the state.

cesspools and seepage pits

Cesspools and Seepage Pits

cesspools and seepage pitsCesspools and Seepage Pits

Cesspools and seepage pits are the predecessors of the modern day septic system.  Older houses may still be utilizing these systems especially if they have not been sold in the last 100 years.  So what is a cesspool and seepage pit?

Cesspools

The cesspool is the forerunner to the modern day septic system. The cesspool is simply a vertical pit dug into the earth. This pit is lined with a porous cement, or block, or stone. Gravel fills the area outside of the liner.   Wastewater from the home is channeled to the cesspool. The solids fall to the bottom where they are partially digested by bacteria and microorganisms that occur there naturally. The effluent leaches out into the gravel and soil surrounding the pit.

Today, cesspools are not the best method of dealing with household wastewater. If your home has one and it is working properly, keep it carefully maintained by having it pumped regularly. Avoiding putting grease and food down the drains will help keep it working properly.

Seepage Pits

Many people confuse cesspools with seepage pits. They serve different purposes in treating wastewater. A seepage pit is similar to a cesspool in construction. It  consists of a large pit lined with concrete rings, or porous masonry block to support the walls of the pit, and a surrounding bed of gravel. The difference is that only effluent that has come from a septic tank enters a seepage pit. The effluent has already been through the first stage of processing in the tank. Once it enters the seepage pit it is temporarily stored there until it gradually seeps through the walls and into the surrounding soil. A biomat forms in the bottom of the pit and as the pit ages the biomat grows thick clogging the pores of the pit walls. Seepage pits are not as efficient at processing effluent as drainfields or soil absorption beds.

The most serious concern with both cesspools and seepage pits involves the water table.  They are both closer to the water table, and therefore, they do not protect our groundwater as well as a modern septic system.

Bacteria and Enzymes in Your Septic System

What makes a septic system work properly? Billions of naturally occurring microscoBasic Septic Maintenancepic bacteria and enzymes are responsible for a major part of the three-stage treatment that processes wastewater in a septic system.

The wastewater in the septic tank begins the process of decomposition by separating into layers.  Bacteria, which is naturally present in all septic systems, will begin to digest the solids which have settled to the bottom of the tank.  These naturally occurring bacteria will change up to 50% of these solids into liquids and gases.

There are all kinds of additives on the market advertised to improve the biological environment of your septic system, but most experts agree that they are not needed.  The best plan is to keep high doses of cleaners and bleaches out of your septic system which can kill off the beneficial bacteria.

Another important part of the process occurs in the drainfield.  The effluent, or wastewater from the septic tank enters the drain or leachfield and comes into contact with the biomat.  There are organisms living in the biomat which further digest the organic matter in the effluent and from there it reaches the soil where the last part of the process occurs.  Bacteria in the soil further treat the waste. It is important that the drainfield not be flooded.  Many of these bacteria found in the soil and biomat are aerobic or oxygen dependent.  If water floods a drainfield, they may die off and will not be replenished until the flooding is relieved.
