Waste water management

Approval to operate an existing waste water system

Every onsite waste management system requires approval to operate from Council, according to the Local Government Act, 1993, Section 68.

This must be renewed every few years depending on the risk rating of the system. Property owners must comply with conditions of their approval. It is an offence to operate an onsite system without approval from Council.
