If you do not live in an area with reticulated sewerage and you are building a house or extending an existing home to add more bedrooms, you need to apply for a permit to install or alter a septic tank system. Septic systems are based on the number of bedrooms in a home.
Permits are valid for two years and construction of the system must be installed as outlined in the permit to install.
A 'Permit to Use' will be issued once the system is installed and all necessary inspections have been completed and the plumber's compliance certificate submitted.
When you have completed a septic tank application form send your form with the following documents:
A council officer will contact the customer to take payment.
You can get more information and advice by contacting council.
The system you install must be approved by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). Visit the EPA website for more information.
These businesses can undertake a land capability assessment for you.
