Wastewater is your laundry, shower and toilet water which is collected and treated before dispersal.

We operate reticulated wastewater schemes (or mains sewerage schemes) in many of the urban areas of the District. These schemes carry effluent to the District's wastewater treatment plants.

Properties that lie outside these schemes rely on on-site wastewater treatment. It is vital that on-site wastewater management systems are designed, installed and managed to reflect the nature of the site conditions and constraints associated with the property and dwelling. If they do not, domestic wastewater will not be treated or contained on-site and the discharge will result in adverse effects off-site.
