Community Wastewater Management


Each property has its own septic tank which breaks down wastes and allows effluent water to discharge out of the other end of the tank into a network of pipes and pumps for disposal into the CWMS lagoons.

It is common practice now for Councils throughout the State to provide a service where individual septic tanks are desludged on a regular, compulsory basis.  It is a condition of Council’s licence from the Environment Protection Agency running the Scheme that we implement a program to have the accumulated sludge and solids removed from septic tanks within the township of Robe once every 4 years so that they can work effectively.

Council has engaged Envirogen Industrial Services (Aust) Pty Ltd to undertake the CWMS Desludging Program.
