Mud Interceptor

The ParkUSA® MudTrooper® is a sand-mud interceptor that consists of a multi-compartment basin for sediment separation.

Wastewater that contains significant amounts of solids that interfere with the proper drainage and treatment of effluent water must be treated before being discharged into the sanitary sewer system. To comply with effluent water quality standards of the EPA Clean Water Act and local plumbing codes, a sand-mud interceptor for waste-water pretreatment is recommended.

Typical applications include vehicle/ equipment wash down, maintenance garages, and manufacturing facilities. The waste discharge from these facilities usually contains high inorganic loads, including sand-mud/silt and detergents.

The purpose of the sand-mud interceptor is to intercept the wastewater and retain it for a sufficient amount of time, which allows for separation of the solids from the water.

The sand-mud interceptor is typically located outside of the building or washrack and buried below grade. The buried interceptor is constructed of precast concrete,  providing years of continuous service. The interceptor is divided into several compartments where solids will sink to the bottom, and floatables rise to the surface. Clarified effluent discharges into the sanitary sewer, typically through an approved sample well fixture.

Over time, solids will accumulate in the sand-mud interceptor. A routine cleaning schedule will ensure maximum performance of the interceptor.
