Onsite Waste Water
During the course of processing a development, subdivision or building proposal, consideration must be given to environmentally appropriate methods of domestic wastewater treatment and disposal. Treatment can be by means of a range of different systems depending on design characteristics, site conditions and developer's preferences.
Is it necessary to make application for an onsite wastewater disposal system?
The Plumbing Regulations 2000 require that approval be obtained for the installation of an onsite wastewater disposal system. Council officers carry out an assessment of site conditions after which a Special Plumbing Permit maybe issued.
Please Note: Some sites may require an On Site Waste Water Assessment to be completed by a suitably qualified person.
