Drainfields and Dry Wells

A septic drain field is part of a septic system that removes contaminants from the liquid that emerges from the septic tank. After the microorganisms inside the septic tank have broken down the raw sewage, the liquid flows through a series of underground trenches containing perforated pipes and some type of porous material, usually gravel.

Dry wells are holes drilled directly into the ground which allow water to be absorbed into the soil. The walls of these holes are reinforced with some type of material to allow them to keep their shape, much like water wells. This provides a natural, cheap, and efficient way to provide drainage for low points in constructions and dispose of runoff. Dry wells are sometimes combined with sump pumps, so that the pumps can handle excessive water in case of overflow.
