What is the Drywell?

The drywell generally consists of a pit lined with rocks or blocks to allow water to pass through into the underlying soil. The drywell does not receive any septage but only receives water from areas such as the laundry drain. This water can contain lint or other small fibers as well as detergent scum. The water drains through the soil where the biodegradable material is acted on by the aerobic bacteria in the soil.
