Long Island Project to update to nitrogen-removal wastewater treatment systems
Many homes in the United States treat domestic wastewater with septic tanks. The treated water is absorbed into the soil on the property. Since septic tanks only separate solids from liquids, groundwater pollution is often a problem. Even in Suffolk County, New York, many homes are equipped with a septic tank. The treated water is absorbed into the soil, which in turn causes serious coastal water pollution. In 2016, the County adopted a plan to update wastewater treatment systems and tackle this coastal water pollution. FujiClean is participating in this project. FujiClean's advanced onsite treatment wastewater treatment system has been praised as a lightweight and compact wastewater treatment system with outstanding treatment functions.
Commercial Project in Suffolk County, NY
Seven Model CEN 21 systems starting operation from 2019
Montauk, Suffolk County, is located at the tip of Long Island, New York. Montauk has many beach resorts and is also known as a fishing capital. The nitrogen-removing type system involved installing seven mid-size tanks at hotel restaurants along the coast. This wastewater treatment system was installed to help protect Montauk’s water environment and beautiful nature.
Tackling the raw sewage crisis in Alabama, U.S.
FujiClean is participating in this public-private partnership project!
Lowndes County, Alabama, is located in the southern United States in the Black Belt region, known for its rich clay soil. About 80 percent of the low-income households in this region are not connected to the public wastewater system, and must install their own facilities to treat their wastewater. However, many families cannot afford to purchase and maintain a wastewater treatment system. All wastewater, including toilet sewage, is discharged directly into the ground several meters from the house. When there is heavy rain, the untreated sewage can flow back into the house and cause suffering for the residents. This sanitary environment has only worsened over the past 20 years, prompting the Alabama Department of Public Health to launch the “Black Belt Unincorporated Wastewater Program” to address this issue. LIXIL Corporation, a private company with expertise in plumbing technology, was the first to announce its participation in the project. Following LIXIL’s appeal, FujiClean, which has expertise in wastewater treatment facilities, decided to join the project.
A pilot project that aims to solve sanitation issues has been started at 100 homes, employing the FujiClean System. The FujiClean System uses a biofilm method to treat wastewater to a high degree, so the discharge pipe does not clog at the outlet, and the concern of sewage backflow into the homes is being resolved. This pilot project is taking on new challenges, such as further reducing installation costs and installing LIXIL’s water-saving equipment to reduce the treatment and disposal volume, ease the system’s load, and save water.
Comments from the field
After building relationships with the homeowners and commercial site managers, I have come to find that our customers are pleased with their FujiClean system because the tank is a convenient size that can fit in any environment. They appreciate that FujiClean ensures that the tanks are working efficiently, with proper maintenance and checkups. Our clients also love that the Nitrogen levels are well below the regulated number requested from the Suffolk County Water Authority. The people in Eastern Long Island are very environmentally conscious, and word about FujiClean is spreading quickly. There is a high demand for the product and a strong interest in improving the water quality for future generations.
