In Victoria there are currently an estimated 42,000 metropolitan residential properties and an unknown number of rural residential properties that are reliant upon domestic septic tank systems to treat and dispose of domestic wastewater.

National standards and state based guidelines acknowledge that septic tank systems are an acceptable domestic wastewater solution provided that wastewater is contained and disposed effectively within property boundaries. The poor management of domestic wastewater can pollute surface waters, groundwater, and surrounding soils and exposes the community to environmental and public health risks. It can also become detrimental to the local amenity.

Current policy requires best practice management of domestic wastewater prior to new septic tank installations to prevent future problems within Victoria. One of these requirements on developers and homeowners in Victoria is the need to prepare a Land Capability Assessment (LCA) with the aim of assessing the capability of a site to sustainably manage wastewater within allotment boundaries and to identify a management program that minimises the environmental impacts of domestic wastewater.

Further, local Council’s within Victoria have the responsibility of developing Domestic Wastewater Management Plans (DWMPs) within their municipalities that reviews land capability, identifies preferred options, costs, funding needs, timelines and priorities in ensuring sustainable domestic wastewater management.

We understand the risks associated with domestic wastewater and how best to ensure sustainable domestic onsite wastewater management.
