Abstract:
Background and Objective: There are some wastewater treatment technologies using septic system, thus bringing about various designs which make most conventional septic tanks majorly serve the purpose of treating wastewater only to a safe level before its disposal. The present work, therefore aimed to depict engineering design of a rectangular septic tank attached to some treatment facilities to partially treat wastewater and also perform other pertinent functions. Materials and Methods: Two major processes were employed as dimensions needed for the proper drafting of the whole system were first calculated for using relevant standards and established figures from texts. Thereafter, AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor were both used to render and model the two and three dimensional engineering drawings of the whole system combined together. Results: The results revealed that all the values gotten for each of the facility calculated for fall within the recommended values provided by relevant agencies. Taking for instance, the septic and sedimentation tank, the length to width ratio gotten is 2 and 3.5, respectively and falls between recommended range of 1.5-7.5. Also, the surface loading of the latter was gotten to be 12 m3 day1 m2 which is less than the maximum recommended value of 40 m3 day1 m2. All these results also agree with past similar research. The engineering drawings (both two and three dimension perspective) have clearly revealed the possibility of the conceptualized idea of the whole system to partially treat wastewater and perform other functions. Conclusion: This design is now an alternative technology in wastewater treatment and can be adopted to supplement water demand of places with limited access to water.
