OAI has been involved with siting and permitting 2 commercial and 19 domestic de-centralized wastewater treatment facilities across southwest Alabama. These effective and efficient "package" wastewater treatment plants provide leading edge solutions for developers when compared to costly centralized wastewater treatment systems. Each de-centralized wastewater treatment system, specifically designed to meet existing needs and/or pre-planned for future growth demands, provides a solution to the developer, gives a sense of comfort to the homeowner and generates a new revenue stream to the area utility. Everyone wins including the environment.

Each system includes a "home based" settling unit, a collection network which moves the effluent from the home to the treatment plant, a modular wastewater treatment plant, Figure 1 below, and the drip disposal field, Figure 2 below. The wastewater treatment plant shown in Figure 1 treats up to 30,000 gallons of wastewater per day. This low profile plant operates with a simple control panel outfitted with a telemetry system for remote monitoring and control. This system will be up-graded with additional units as needed and will ultimately be capable of treating 100,000 gpd. This plant's current electric bill runs less than $130/month. With a modular design, these systems can be built for a single subdivision or serve in a regional capacity for multiple subdivisions.
