Sewer and Septics
Wickenburg has the only public sewer in the area, so unless you are in reach of the Wickenburg Sewer system then you are probably looking at a septic system. There are few exceptions to this as some of the recent developers have or will soon be building private sewer systems for their developments.
Living with a conventional septic
What is a septic system?
Basically a septic tank is a Concrete or Fiberglass tank buried under ground. As the waste collects in the tank the liquid and solids separate, and bacteria forms naturally to break down the majority of the solids. The liquid will eventually flow out through leach lines into a drain field of gravel, and then into the soil. The gravel and the soil act as a biological filter.
