When toilets are flushed the waste goes to the septic tank which holds the solid waste, the run off liquid is effluent that goes to a drainage field. New laws state that the effluent from a septic tank can no longer go to any rivers, streams, becks or dykes or a treatment plant would need to be added. If it goes to a drainage field there can't be any bore holes in the vicinity. Rainwater shouldn't go to a septic tank as it can overload the system.

Septic tanks are a great alternative to mains drainage offering the chance to have drainage without the costs of sewerage costs to your water bill. You can also make these septic tanks economically friendly using natural water courses as surface run offs to reduce emptying costs on a regular basis
