In a 1980 US EPA DESIGN MANUAL: Onsite Wastewater Treatment and Disposal Systems, the US EPA stated, “Although wastewater treatment and disposal systems serving single homes have been used for many years, they have often been considered an inadequate or temporary solution until sewers could be constructed.” Now, with much research and proven performance, advanced wastewater treatment systems do provide a reliable and efficient means of wastewater treatment and disposal at relatively low cost.

SYSTEM DESIGN: FAST wastewater treatment systems
Category Primary and secondary treatment
Technology Continuous flow: “COMBINED SUSPENDED AND ATTACHED GROWTH AEROBIC TREATMENT SYSTEMS”
Input Untreated wastewater
Function Oxidation, nutrient transformation/removal, and pathogen reduction Applications Recommended for individual, small community, and commercial systems. Offer alternate systems for advanced nitrogen and phosphorus removal, lagoons, and retrofits to existing systems.
BioMicrobics Inc. offers wastewater treatment systems for single family residences. The units are composed of a septic tank, fixed film media, and an air supply. BioMicrobics also provides systems for applications such as extended aeration (LIXOR), retrofitting existing septic systems (RetroFAST), enhanced nitrification (NitriFAST), enhanced clarification (ABC-C), advanced nitrogen removal (ABC-N), and advanced phosphorus removal (ABC-P). See MyFAST & MacroFITT technology for larger applications.
Description of process
The basic residential FAST system consists of a fixed-film media which is submerged in the second compartment of a modified, two-compartment septic tank. Air is supplied to the fixed-film process by a remote blower. Alternate modes of operation include recirculation of nitrified wastewater to the primary settling chamber for denitrification and intermittent operation of the blower to reduce electricity usage and increase denitrification.
The system is integrated into a standard septic tank and therefore does not require additional space. The blower is generally located above grade in an area that will not be flooded or below grade in a vault (2 ft x 2 ft x 2 ft). The effluent meets secondary quality requirements and can be distributed to soil treatment system or disinfected for surface irrigation.
The BioMicrobics FAST system has been evaluated in numerous research studies, as reported in Table 8-4. Depending on the treatment objectives, various systems are available for advanced nitrogen and phosphorus removal using chemical addition.
The treatment unit can be installed in a standard septic tank. The space requirements are not greater than a standard septic tank. Performance data for the FAST system is available from multiple studies.
Operation and maintenance
The FAST systems incorporate a blower that will need periodic monitoring. The air intake filter for the blower will need to be cleaned. The blower is equipped with an alarm to signal in the event that the blower malfunctions. Sludge removal will also be needed on a periodic basis, approximately every one to three years.
