Lake of the Ozark's couple spent $10,500 for septic system [Photo]

Carroll and Mike Rinker stand for a portrait on their deck, which faces one of Lake of the Ozarks' finger coves, on Thursday, Oct. 29. Because the Sunrise Beach area has no central water filtration and treatment center, the Rinkers spent about $10,500 to install a septic system that drains water into the ground directly above the lake.

Septic Tanks [Graphic]

A septic tank is a watertight container, usually underground, that separates solid materials from wastewater. Depending on the size of the house, the tank can hold from 500 to 2,000 gallons of substance. The materials in the tank are divided into three parts: solid waste like scum or grease, liquid waste and sludge. Without regular inspections, a tank’s pipes, walls and sealants can degrade over time without notice, resulting in leakage of contaminated water and untreated sewage
