With many city treatment centers, the effluent is simply given a chemical treatment to exterminate any remaining germs and it's then discharged. In others, the effluent goes into an aeration tank, where the bacteria eliminates any staying organic material from it, then into a settling tank, which allows the majority of the staying particles to settle before the water is drained out. There are also more sophisticated metropolitan systems that have a third level of filtration on top of all this, that includes the elimination of nitrogen and phosphorus from the water, as well as extra chemical treatments to kill off bacteria.
Septic systems don't do any of this. Rather, when effluent leaves the tank, it enters into some kind of absorption location, where the water is launched into the soil. Leading layers of soil naturally have germs that treat the water as it enters, so as long as the system distributes it uniformly and slowly, this method is safe. Although some might utilize a simple pit for this procedure, and others will use a gray-water recycling system, most have a leach field. This is a series of underground perforated pipes, that gradually launch the effluent.
