Fecal sludge (FS, also referred to as Septage) emptied from septic tanks or pits can be safely disposed and treated either at an independent fecal sludge treatment plant (FSTP) or cotreated with sewage at a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Co-treatment of FS in STPs depends on many factors, including the characteristics of FS and capacity and performance of STP. Co-treating FS at an STP requires a proper septage receiving facility, located either at the STP or at intermediate points in the city to connect to the sewer network so that FS is safely conveyed through the system and does not hinder, or overload the network or processes in the STP.
