The objectives of this study have been threefold: determination of the effect of ground food wastes on the rates of accumulation of scum and sludge, determination of the effect of ground food wastes on the rate of failure of soil absorption systems, and determination of the effect of ground food wastes on the 'starting' of digestion in the septic tank.
