Septic Tank Inspections

High risk septic tanks will be being inspected in the coming months. Septic tanks and other effluent disposal systems in closely settled areas and along the Billabong, Colombo and Yanco Creeks will be inspected in the coming months.
The reason that those in closely settled areas and close to permanent water courses will be inspected is because they pose the highest potential risk to both human and environmental health.
Council will be charging a fee for this inspection.
After each inspection, Council’s officer may recommend some improvements that need to be made to minimise the risk to human & environmental health.  Some of the things that Council will be looking at include:

•    Effluent ponding at ground level.
•    Distance of disposal area from watercourse
•    Distance of disposal area from neighbours
•    Septic Tank size and construction

Got any questions?  Please feel free to give Council a call on 03 5886 1200

NSW Rural Fire Service AIDER Program

The AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents) program is a free, one-off service which supports some of our most at-risk community members. The program helps people live more safely and confidently in their home in areas where bush fires may start. The AIDER program is designed for people who have limited domestic support available from family, relatives, friends or other services. This could include older people, people living with a disability, and people who are already receiving community assistance and services. Their property must also be on bush fire prone land (land that can support a bush fire or be subject to bush fire attack).

AIDER services can include:

  • clearing gutters 
  • thinning vegetation around the home 
  • removing leaf and tree debris
  • trimming branches from close to the home
  • mowing or slashing long grass
