Wastewater system install applications

Wastewater systems application

Choosing the correct and most suitable system for your property is dependent on many factors such as the soil types, available allotment space and the availability or not of a community wastewater management system connection (CWMS).

All waste control system installations must comply with the onsite wastewater systems code and can be submitted via the onsite-wastewater works application form. Please take note of the information required for your wastewater application.

You can make an online wastewater payment or enquiry for an application that has already been lodged with Council.
