Council is required to prepare an On Site Sewage Management Strategy for its Local Government Area.
The On Site Sewage Management Strategy outlines an inspection regime for all septic tank systems in the Local Government Area based on a number of risk factors (e.g. land size, availability of water, location in drinking water catchment).
Council's Environmental Health Officers will be progressively implementing the On Site Sewage Management Strategy. Fees for these inspections will apply as per Council's Management Plan.
