Most people don't know what happens to the waste that is pumped from septic tanks in Loudoun County VA. Where does that stuff go?
After septic tanks are pumped out in Loudoun County VA, SES takes the waste to receive further treatment to the Loudoun Water's Broad Run Wastewater Reclamation Facility. The biosolids (treated residuals from the wastewater treatment process) are recycled and applied to farmer's fields in lieu of fertilizer, land filled, or incinerated. The water is processed and some is discharged into Broad Run, a tributary to the Potomac River.
Businesses can also obtain reclaimed water from Loudoun Water's Broad Run Water Reclamation Facility. There are key benefits of using reclaimed water for non-potable purposes: it conserves precious drinking water, reduces water withdrawal from rivers, reduces nutrient loadings to the Chesapeake watershed and is cost effective.
For instance, some office buildings around Loudoun County VA use reclaimed water for irrigation, cooling towers and other non-potable uses, in order to meet LEED (Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design) criteria.
