Sometimes it can be difficult for a small town to be able to deal with a wastewater issue. Perhaps the volume they had previously dealt with had been lower, or they had operated under certain regulations that made it easier. As things change, however, keeping up with the technological and economic needs to ensure your onsite wastewater treatment plant remains operational can be difficult.
A good example is East Hampton, New York. This small town has had a treatment plant in operation for septage for a number of years. Septage carters in and around the area could drop off their loads to keep costs and travel expenses down. They had recently run into some trouble with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation as several violations were noted between 2008 and 2011. In order to slow things down until a better solution could be found the treatment plant was turned into a transfer station to have the septage taken elsewhere. Hauler access to the station was also restricted.
Several haulers have expressed their unhappiness with the situation as they have been forced to evaluate if they can even continue operations. The transfer station is not enough to handle their loads and a number are saying they might have to shut down their businesses. The city is still trying to figure out how best to handle the situation. It is a decision between if they should fully privatize the entire operation or take over the plant and operate it through the city. They also have to decide if they should upgrade the plant, try some other option, or just shut it down. Until they have a solution, local septic businesses are suffering.
