Due to increased land costs associated with property inside the city limits, the developer needed property located on the fringe of Rogers and to meet the demand for multi-family housing development. The property selected was within Little Flock’s city limits, a small town with no sewer system infrastructure. The developer turned to Aqua Tech Systems team to solve their problem and work with their civil engineering firm who were not
experienced in sewer system design. Aqua Tech’s team worked diligently to gain the support of the city of Little Flock and helped to engineer, permit, and construct the system for the developer.
As with conventional municipal sewer systems the Aqua Tech system includes collecting, treating and reusing wastewater It involves a four-step treatment process and the environment's natural ability to enhance the treatment. Meeting standards as defined by the AR Department of Environmental Quality, the result is highly treated wastewater which is beneficial for irrigating a portion of the open space in the community.
Wastewater is collected by means of conventional gravity lines and pumped from a lift station to a primary settling and equalization system and then into series of buried trickling filter treatment units. This technology was selected due to the biological nature of the treatment process, it is noted for its reliability, lack of odor and limited maintenance requirements. Treated to secondary standards the wastewater then enters into a final settling tank process for additional removal of microscopic organisms. Only after a thorough analysis by a certified state soil scientist and design by a licensed engineer, can the treated effluent then be dispersed at a precisely designed rate below ground for additional treatment, a proven technology that has been used for more than 40 years.
All Aqua Tech Systems products and processes generate cost-benefit advantages greater than those associated with conventional onsite systems and traditional sewer. We delivered to this developer real cost savings by integrating modular and scalable technologies that have been selected specifically for their simplicity, natural stability, capital & life cycle cost efficiencies and regulatory acceptance.
