Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

Installing a Wastewater System

The application process requires that the following information must be submitted to Council:

  • A completed, signed application form
  • Lodgement of application fee of $586.00 for a new wastewater system or $191.00 for an alteration to an existing system
  • A locality plan
  • A site plan of the proposed installation
  • A copy of the site Land Capability Assessment (if applicable) (Please see the Land Capability Assessment Guidelines for further information)

Please read the Domestic Wastewater Application Guide thoroughly before you lodge your application. This will help prevent delays in your application process.

The Environmental Health Officer performs three (3) inspections of each system undertaken.
These inspections include:
1. An initial site inspection after receipt by Council of the application
2. An inspection of the septic tank during the installation process (if available)
3. A final inspection when the system is completed

After the final inspection, the EHO will ask for a Plumbers Industry Certificate of Compliance. Once this has been received, an Approval to Use will be issued. Please read this Approval to Use carefully and abide to its conditions.

It is your responsibility to manage the wastewater from your septic system and/or treatment plant.
