Septic tank system

According to our architect and town hall in Pedreguer, Monte Solana, we only can install a closed septic tank system. This means that we need to empty the tank almost every week. This can not be right!  Is this really the right rule or do we miss something?

I think you need to establish from architect exactly what is meant by closed system. Most modern septic tanks are a unit sunk into the ground with separate chambers and a run off system - channels in the ground - for effectively water. Once functioning they should look after themselves although there are certain things that you cannot use with them, eg a waste disposal unit as it upsets the biological balance and bleach is not a good idea. They do need emptying now and then but not weekly!!! They may of course mean a mini sewage treatment plant, unlikely I would have thought as not inexpensive, but they produce waste water clean enough to go into rivers. Septic tanks are very common here and always have been especially in rural areas. However, the old pozo negro which was more or less a cess pit, has been banned I believe, so they may be trying to ensure that you don’t use that.

Thank you for your answer. But as far as we understood from the townhall there are new rules for the Monte Solana area and they say, that you only can install a totally closed septic system, so no empthying clean water at all

Understood - but I would at the least, ask WHY? Presumably it may be something to do with existing watercourses, pollution etc?
