Physical Treatment of Wastewater

Physical Treatments of Wastewater

  • Clarifier (primary and secondary) – 
    Clarifiers are settling tanks built with mechanical means for continuous removal of solids being deposited by sedimentation. A clarifier is generally used to remove solid particulates or suspended solids from liquid for clarification and (or) thickening.
  • Gravity Separators –
    Gravity separation is an industrial method of separating two components, either a suspension, or dry granular mixture where separating the components with gravity is sufficiently practical: i.e. the components of the mixture have different specific weight. All of the gravitational methods are common in the sense that they all use gravity as the dominant force. The working principle is to lift the material by vacuum over an inclined vibrating screen covered deck. This results in the material being suspended in air while the heavier impurities are left behind on the screen and are discharged from the stone outlet.

LHR Farms and ECO-H provide safe sustainable nontoxic wastewater disposal


Waste Water Treatment is serious business, especially for food or beverage processing plants. Many municipalities are trying desperately to plug budget deficits or deal with rising energy costs, by introducing higher fees for companies that are out of compliance in regard to wastewater treatment ordinances.

Adding additional fees is a no-brainer for politicians, it covers their spending deficits while winning big points with advocacy groups for the ‘green movement’. But even ignoring the cost associated with being out of wastewater treatment compliance, the PR nightmare of having your company leaving a negative impact on the environment can damage your market irrevocably. The Sierra Club for example is 1.4 million people strong.  These activist influence policy but are also consumers and influential business leaders and even celebrities.  Beyond the weight of government mandates and fees, there is a consumer which will decide to buy or not buy your products based largely on the perception of your company’s public image; including your wastewater treatment policy and environmental footprint.

Chemical Wastewater Treatment Systems

Chemical Wastewater Treatment

Here at Hulsey Environmental we offer many services that can get your wastewater treatment system into government mandated compliance, helping you to avoid surcharges. These services include chemical wastewater treatment systems for environmentally sustainable  disposal of your wastewater.

Chemical treatment

What is a chemical treatment of wastewater? It is a process through which non toxic chemicals are used to remove
harmful bacteria and unsafe materials from wastewater such as that produced by food processing plants. Wastewater
often ends up in public streams and reservoirs so complete filtration and purification to eliminate any material or
organic threats is crucial.

Hulsey Environmental and LHR Farms offers expert biological wastewater treatment solutions.

Biological Wastewater Treatment

Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems

Biological Systems include

  • Sequence Batch Reactors
  • CMAS (Continous Mixed Activated Sludge)


A Biological wastewater treatment system, is a wastewater treatment process that uses naturally occurring microbes to break down solids in wastewater to more simple substances. The goal of a Biological wastewater treatment system is to reduce BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand). In nature these ‘naturally occurring’ microbes would break down sewage and wastewater products that animals and humans generate. However the concentration of wastewater generated by people and companies require that this process be accelerated using technology to meet the higher throughput.

Sludge Dewatering

Sludge Dewatering and Solids Handling

By reducing the water weight of your sludge you can save money on solids Handling and shipping cost.

  • Primary sludge: which is solids that have been contained in raw wastewater.
  • Secondary sludge which is biomass that has been produced during biological wastewater treatment.

Hulsey Plumbing offers Backflow Prevention and backflow certification to business througout N Ga including locations in Gainesville, Athens, Winder, Lawrenceville, Blairsville, Gwinnett, Lumpkin, Hall, Alpharetta, Roswell,

Backflow Prevention

Backflow Prevention

We do Backflow testing and certification

A backflow prevention assembly( or backflow Preventer)  is used to protect water supplies from contamination or pollution.

In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system, the pressure in the pipe may be reduced and may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn into the system.

Backflow Valve

Back pressure is another way that an undesirable contaminant may enter your potable water piping. This can be stopped with the use of a backflow valve. Sources of back pressure may be pumps in the water distribution system, boilers or heat exchanging equipment and even power washing equipment. In these cases you may have an almost constant risk of overcoming the static water pressure in the piping and when chemicals are used, as they are for commercial/industrial descaling (boilers) or residential as in deck/siding cleaning such as bleaches (power washing), you would benefit greatly from having a backflow preventer.

Can you risk loss of your business license because you neglected having your backflow meter tested and certified? Can you risk loss of business because a backflow problem stopped operations?

In the long run, Hulsey Environmental Services will save time, trouble and money as well as deliver piece of mind with a complete, approved backflow prevention plan:


  • Meter Installation
  • Repair
  • Professional Backflow Certification

Drain Field Repairs

Tank & Drain Field Repairs


Do you know where the lines for septic tank’s drain field are located?

  • That knowledge will help you prevent damage to the field and, subsequently, to the groundwater.
  • Observing certain conditions occurring along the drain field will alert you to potential problems within your septic tank.


Why should you not build, pave, or landscape on or near the drain field?

  • Drain fields require plenty of oxygen, which is used by bacteria to break down and treat sewage.
  • Soil compaction further prevents oxygen from entering the soil and keeps water from flowing from the drain field.


At Hulsey Environmental Services, we encourage you to take prompt action if you notice any of the following circumstances in proximity to your drain field:

  • Standing liquid, wet spots, or swampy ground in the yard during dry weather.
  • Lush vegetation that is larger and more robust than similar plants in other areas of the yard.
  • Effluent draining back into the septic tank from the drain field after the septic tank is pumped.

Sewer Lines

Sewer Line Repair – Replacement

A clogged sewer line can cause your toilet to flush slowly and fill to the rim with water after flushing. If this happens, and plunging does not help, call Hulsey Environmental for sewer line replacement in the Georgia area. A clogged sewer line can be repaired by a professional plumber with the knowledge and experience can unclog, repair or replace a sewer line. However, the older the sewer line becomes, the greater the chance for clogging or leaking and the more likely sewer line replacement will be necessary.



Homeowners often waste money by repeatedly cleaning the line instead of replacing a clogged or damaged sewer line. If your toilets back up repeatedly and you suspect a sewer line problem, call the experts at Hulsey Environmental. Hulsey’s trained professionals will diagnose the problem and determine if the system is simply clogged and can be quickly cleared, or if sewer line replacement is necessary.
