H2S Gas Mitigation Guidance Available for NPCA Members

Large concentrations of H2S gas in septic tanks, grease interceptors and other wastewater treatment structures can contribute to a phenomenon that can adversely impact the structure regardless of material. It’s also a safety hazard.

To provide guidance on ways to help reduce the amount of H2S gas and its impact on wastewater treatment structures, NPCA has published its “Guidance for H2S Gas Mitigation in Wastewater Tanks (Septic Tanks),” available at no cost to all members through the myNPCA portal. This guide was developed in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Stevens-Point as part of an NPCA-funded research project on H2S gas.

To access it, log into the myNPCA portal through the link below, then click on the Committees button, then scroll down to click on the Wastewater Treatment products Committee tab under the Products category. You can then access the PDF through link at the top of the committee summary section.
