ATU septic systems are now recommended or required in many low-elevation areas.
ATU septic systems work differently than conventional gravity-fed septic systems, and are more like municipal waste processing plants, just on a much smaller scale. ATU septic systems are now recommended or required in many low-elevation areas, including areas in and near Clermont, Florida. “ATU” stands for “aerobic treatment units,” and these systems inject oxygen directly into the septic treatment tank. This allows them to encourage the growth of aerobic bacteria that can break down and reduce the effluent (solid waste) in the tank. Conventional septic systems rely more on anaerobic bacteria to treat waste.
ATU septic systems are ideal for many applications, including houses with smaller lots, areas with poor soil, places where the water table is especially high, and locations near bodies of water. Many new septic permits in Florida now require ATU septic systems due to the lack of elevation changes that can make conventional septic systems less effective.
