Enhanced Treatment Units

CEA Engineers provides engineering solutions to challenging site conditions, such as high groundwater tables, undersized lots, less than ideal soil conditions, or proximity to surface waters through innovative designs to provide proper wastewater treatment and environmental protection.   Often, the approach is to use Enhanced Treatment Units (EHUs) to meet the challenges a site my pose. 

EHUs have the added benefit of delivering more highly treated and thus cleaner water to drainage (leach) fields than conventional septic systems, as seen in the link below to an EHU distributed by one of CEA Engineers partners.

We always adhere to all environmental regulations and safety requirements and look to incorporate the most cost-effective and environmentally prudent engineering solutions into our designs.  As always, we are dedicated to honest and clear communication with our clients throughout the site investigation, design, and regulatory compliance process.
