Septic tanks

Properties that don't have existing sewerage infrastructure may require an onsite domestic wastewater management system such as a septic tank. These can include trenches for treatment to dispose of the wastewater generated onsite.

Before installing, altering or using any onsite domestic wastewater management system a permit must be obtained from Council.
