Wastewater Treament and Reuse


After more than a decade of concept development, testing, and product development Adelante Consulting is pleased to bring Pugo Systems to market.

Pugo Systems is an innovative alternative onsite wastewater treatment system (I/A OWTS)—a complicated name for a simple, affordable solution to today’s septic and wastewater challenges. It uses a natural biological process to reduce nitrates in the treated effluent. There’s no need for chemicals, and it is easy to install and maintain.

In March 2016, Pugo Systems attained National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) Standard 245 certification. Under a rigorous six month testing period conducted under the provisions of NSF/ANSI Standard 40 testing for residential wastewater treatment systems and concurrent Standard 245 testing for nitrogen reduction, Pugo Systems was successful in passing both tests with total nitrogen reduction greater that 50% and a total nitrogen median value of 17 mg/L.

In an effort to address a nitrogen pollution crisis on Long Island, Suffolk County introduced the Reclaim Our Water initiative, a comprehensive plan to improve the region’s water quality by reducing nitrogen pollution through the implementation of advanced on-site wastewater treatment systems in targeted areas. Pugo Systems was installed at four Long Island homes as part of Suffolk County’s (NY) Phase II Demonstration Program.
