Many people both in developed and developing countries use septic tank systems as means of treating their domestic wastes. Pit latrine systems are much in use in many rural areas of the developing countries where, in most cases, water supplies are by dug wells. Domestic wastes contain dangerous substances and pathogenic microorganisms which are responsible for waterborne diseases. Land disposal and treatment systems of domestic wastes appear as the solution to disposal problems in developing countries. These techniques are relatively simple and could be well adapted in any system under appropriate environmental and hydrogeological conditions. Other advantages include relatively low capital and operating costs.
