||About Waste Water Systems, Inc.|
A Corporate Overview
The inception of Waste Water Systems, Inc. (WWSI) was a classic textbook case of fulfilling a need. In October, 1988 a company known as Advanced Water Distribution Systems (ADWS), owned by Thomas A. Sinclair, was approached to design a sprinkler system to dispose of wastewater for an installation in Winder, Georgia. However, when he investigated the site Tom discovered environmental issues which made a sprinkler system impractical for the situation. In fact, there was no known solution, so Tom decided to rise to the challenge and design one.
Using a subsurface drip irrigation process more common to agricultural as the foundation, Tom began inventing a new technology. The engineering and production of the initial prototype took more than four months to complete. This prototype was submitted to Louisiana State University for testing in January 1989. The results were presented to the Environmental Health Section of the Department of Human Resources (DHR) for the State of Georgia. In March 1989 the first successful wastewater filtration and subsurface drip irrigation system was installed. Waste Water Systems was incorporated in the State of Georgia on December 7, 1989, and the company's facilities are located in Ellijay, Georgia.
After working with regulatory agencies for two years, on March 14, 1991 the system, now known by the registered trade name "Perc-Rite"®, received formal recognition as an acceptable alternative to conventional systems within the state of Georgia. A letter was sent by the DHR to the 15 District Environmentalists within the state of Georgia describing the "Perc-Rite" system as:
"... a very effective method of disposing of effluent. The latest version of the system is basically maintenance free..."With a solid foundation in place, WWSI began expanding its marketing efforts. Providing a solution to previously unmanageable situations and allowing development of land unsuitable for conventional septic systems, "Perc-Rite" continues to gain acceptance throughout North America and the International Market as the alternative method for wastewater management.
"Perc-Rite"® Waste Water Disposal System
Process Description (Overview)
Land Treatment by surface and/or subsurface slow rate disposal is a proven and field tested technology which successfully answers the challenge of proper environmental management. Sub surface slow rate disposal is achieved through an underground drip absorption system which allows for minimal drainage of effluent through the ground, with the subsurface strata serving as a huge slow rate bio-filter. This system achieves organic and nitrogen removal while at the same time substantially reducing fecal coliform and facilitating phosphorous fixes to the soil. The loading rate is designed according to soil characteristics with data such as soil restrictive layers, rainfall, evaporation and evapotranspiration rates, and nutrient balances taken into careful consideration.
Waste Water System's sub surface/surface slow rate disposal system consists of the following components.
