What is a Higher Level Treatment system?

A Higher Level Treatment system is one that uses mechanical means to provide additional treatment, wither by trickling the wastewater over a filter or by introducing air into the wastewater. These systems are typically required on small lots and in environmentally sensitive areas. Due to the need for ongoing maintenance, an Operating Permit is usually required.
