The Gift of Clean Water | Onsite Installer

Great article in the April 2013 edition of Onsite Installer, a septic and sewer system trade magazine.  The author interviews Eric Murdock, from Syracuse, NY who designs septic systems for areas on waterfront property and in areas with lots of waterways. Here is an excerpt or two and a link to the article.

“A lot of small communities on septic systems are hearing the big-pipe engineers say, ‘You’re going to need a central collection and treatment system,’ ” Murdock says. “The middle-of-the-road solution is to convert the existing system. That means using the septic tanks for primary settling at the house, retrofitting STEP vaults, and then pumping the septic tank effluent to a common treatment and dispersal field. I think that’s going to be a much more common scenario into the future.
“In recent years, I have focused on bridging the gap between the big engineering companies that have a long history of using the big pipe, and communities that are under financial distress and have concluded that they can’t afford the big pipe. I want to introduce alternative wastewater treatment systems, including STEP systems, and other approaches using different collection, treatment and dispersal options in an onsite setting.

New SludgeHammer Dealer in Indian River, Michigan

We have been unindarted with requests for more information about the SludgeHammer  Aerobic Bacterial Waste Water Treatment system. This started happening after Richard, or “Lincoln” as he likes to be called, published his White Paper, Flush But Don’t Forget” in the Straitsland Resorter. With all of the interest generated by discussions about the state of the septic systems in Tuscarora Township, along with the new sewer system, it made sense for us to affiliate ourselves with the SludgeHammer Group whose World Headquarters is in Petoskey, Michigan. We are excited to announce that we have added the SludgeHammer advanced waste water treatment system to our septic system at BrassWind Landing in Indian River, Michigan. AND we are proud to add, that we have become the only authorized dealer in Northern Michigan for the SludgeHammer company.
