Waste Control Systems

The construction, installation or alteration of a septic tank system (waste control system) requires approval under the provisions of the Public and Environmental Health (Waste Control) Regulations.

No work in relation to the construction, installation or alteration of a waste control system can occur until the approval of the relevant authority has been granted. The installation or alteration of a waste control system is primarily a role of the local Council.

The District Council of Robe provides a full approval and inspection service of all installations and alterations. This requires all plumbing contactors to advise Council of any work that they are undertaking in our area. Plumbing work can only be carried out by licensed operators and this includes owner/builders.
