Septic Holding Tank

Holding Tank Septic Systems use a sealed tank to hold household waste and wastewater until the tank can be pumped out by a septic pumping company.

A holding tank is simply a tight, leak-proof steel drum that acts as a temporary collection for all sewage effluent. When the tank nears its full point the tank contents are then pumped into a truck operated by a state licensed waste hauler. The effluent is trucked to the nearest community having a public sewage treatment system, and dumped under permit via a special metered manhole into that system for treatment.

Most jurisdictions do not permit septic holding tanks as a permanent wastewater handling method for full-time occupied residences, but holding tanks may be permitted during new home construction and in other special cases.
