Absorbing Wells

Absorbing Well

Standard BNQ 3682-850
Structures for Absorbing Wells for Residential Use – Prefabricated structure - Size and physical properties

Waste water treatment relies on structures that demand a solid, effective and safe design. For that reason, the BNQ developed a series of standards governing septic tanks, holding tanks and absorbing wells. BNQ 3682-850 applies in particular to absorbing wells used for detached dwelling waste water treatment. It specifies the size and physical properties of the prefabricated structure for absorbing wells for residential use in concrete, fiberglass reinforced polyester or polyethylene.
