Protect our environment with a nitrogen-reducing septic system.
There has been much discussion about the damaging effects of nitrogen in wastewater. It is believed that when nitrogen leaches into groundwater from treatment plans, farms, and even home septic systems, that it promotes algae which creates the reddish-brown blooms we identify as red tide. The result is not just color, but a depletion of oxygen that adversely affects water creatures, such as fish and shrimp. The solution is not an easy one and it won’t be an overnight solution either, but if every family that needs to replace their septic system or is having one put in during new construction would consider a nitrogen-reducing septic system, we could see a difference in the environment here in the Tampa, Florida area.
Here at Tampa Septic, we want to be a part of protecting the environment by discussing a nitrogen-reducing septic system with our customers that would like to know more about them. In a nutshell, these systems process urine in such a way that nitrogen gas is formed that safely rises into the atmosphere instead of being directed to the water table. We recommend these systems for any property that is close to a body of water, but since the Tampa area sits on the Tampa Bay Watershed that drains into Tampa Bay, it isn’t a bad idea for all homeowners to consider a nitrogen-reducing septic system.
