Wastewater System Checks

septic Published Wednesday, 29th August 2018

Council is commencing a program to ensure all wastewater systems in South Gippsland are correctly maintained.

Owners with high risk systems will shortly receive reminder letters to ensure that required maintenance checks are completed and reported to Council.

As a general rule, septic tank and trench systems require checking every three years with septic tank to sand filters checked every year and package treatment plants checked every three months.
