||The original Section 208 Water Quality Management Plan for Illinois estimated that on-site disposal served a million people in the State, roughly 18 percent of the total population. Until recently, conventional sewage systems were considered to be the most efficient means to meet a community's wastewater treatment needs. However, the necessary capital and operating costs for central sewerage systems can create significant financial burdens on individuals and communities. This report examines the distribution and use of on-site wastewater systems in Illinois. It presents an analysis of generation and disposition of residuals resulting from on-site disposal systems (septage). The report provides: (1) a discussion of the distribution of septic tank usage and density; (2) an estimation and presentation of septage generation rates; (3) a characterization of septage disposal practices and procedures; (4) a description of the general regulatory framework for septic tank operation in Illinois; and (5) concludes with a discussion of overall recommendations for improved management.
