Role of microbes in degrading sludge in septic tanks
Septic tank contains diverse group of naturally occurring microbes that originate from organic waste i.e. feces and kitchen waste. The microorganisms present in the septic tank act as septic tank cleaners that consume organic material as their source of food. Diverse microbial groups utilize different nutrients like protein, carbohydrate and lipids from the waste and thereby causing rapid degradation of the waste. They grow and reproduce using nutrients from this organic waste and in this process, microbes reduce the volume of sludge present inside the septic tank. Microbes are key catalysts that function as biological septic tank cleaners in efficient solid waste management in sanitation, particularly septic tanks.
Why good microbial biodiversity is important in septic tanks
The microorganisms required for as degrading kitchen waste and fecal waste are different because of the difference in composition of both waste materials. The kitchen waste consists of uncooked and leftover food containing fatty products, proteinaceous material, dairy products detergents whereas fecal sludge includes urine and feces that contains excreted from humans. The nutrient composition of kitchen as well as fecal waste is different. Hence degradation of food waste and human waste requires different set of specific septic tank cleaner microbes that can perform rapid and efficient degradation of waste. Having a healthy septic tank microflora encourage efficient solid waste management and discourages illegal practices such as manual scavenging for cleaning septic tanks.
Why you should not employ manual scavengers to clean septic tanks
Manual scavenging of sewers and septic tanks is not only illegal, it is inhuman. The septic tank has a high amount of various gases carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, methane, ammonia, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide. Most of these gases are toxic and can be poisonous to even in small concentrations and lead to unconsciousness irritation of eyes, throat and organ damage upon exposure. The inhalation of high dose of such gases for longer duration can be even fatal. If a septic tank is maintained well, there is absolutely no requirement for manual scavenging as a septic tank cleaner strategy. In the event of a breakdown, employment of automated suctioning of the waste is advisable. Employment of effective and safe solid waste management strategies can help discourage the social evil of manual scavenging.
Why regular septic tank maintenance is necessary to protect public health
When septic tanks are kept ill maintained, they become a haven for disease causing microbes, insects and other pests. Incompletely digested waste can cause unsafe sewage from the tank to percolate into groundwater, thus contaminating it. Drinking this groundwater from wells or other sources can cause people to fall very ill. Also, insects breeding in such septic tank can be carriers of disease in surrounding neighbourhoods. Emission and accumulation of flammable gases in a poor built and functioning septic tank could potentially cause explosions if left unchecked. This is why efficient solid waste management strategies using safe and potent septic tank cleaner microbes must be employed to ensure that septic tanks do not turn into public health and safety risks.
