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
