Butcher Shop Septic Connection
For a USDA meat processing facility, e.g., the butcher shop, it is required by regulations that the process water such as that from the sinks and floors of the cutting room have a separate piping system from the welfare waste water (e.g., toilet) until they exit the building. This is to reduce the chances of contamination which improves sanitation.
If you have been following our adventure you might remember the maze of DWV pipes down in the trenches below our floors. Connecting them all up today was the cumulation of all of that work and planning.
You might wonder why was this saved for such a late date. The reason is simple, I didn’t want sand, dust, concrete, metal filings and other things to get washed into our septic tank and leach field. Thus we got all the dirty work of construction done before I made this final connection between the butcher shop’s plumbing system and the septic tank. Otherwise I could have ended up with a couple of feet of dust settled into our tank and clogging up our leach field. Everything in its time.
