Different Types Of Sewage
There are two main types of sewage that will cause issues for property owners: treated and untreated. Both types of sewage have serious health side effects and need to be cleaned and restored immediately from your home or business.
Untreated sewage is also commonly called wastewater. The name is fitting as untreated sewage contains harmful contaminants that threaten human and animal health. Untreated sewage means that the sewage that has not been processed by a water treatment plant. Broken toilet pipes or backup are a common source of untreated sewage, in addition to floodwaters that contain sewage.
Treated sewage is sewage that has been processed by a water treatment plant to remove harmful bacteria and pollutants. Treated sewage endures a lengthy process to remove all contaminants before it is released back into the environment. It is unusual to come into contact with sewage during treatment unless a tank or pipe breaks.
