    Sewage systems are a common way of collecting and treating wastewater in an urban area. These systems consist of a network of pipes and treatment plants that collect wastewater from homes, businesses, and industries. The wastewater is then treated to remove pollutants and contaminants before being discharged or reused. This method is widely used in urban areas to ensure proper disposal and treatment of wastewater to protect public health and the environment.

      Sewage systems

    • C.

      Sewage and septic systems

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Septic systems
    Explanation
    Septic systems are a way of treating wastewater that uses the natural processes of water filtration. In a septic system, wastewater from a household flows into an underground tank where solids settle at the bottom and oils and grease float to the top. The liquid wastewater then flows into a drain field where it is naturally filtered as it percolates through layers of soil, gravel, and sand. This natural filtration process helps to remove harmful bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants from the wastewater before it reenters the groundwater.
