Do you have a septic system at your place? Then you might like to check out our revised draft Domestic Wastewater Management Plan 2019(PDF, 3MB), which covers how septic systems in the shire are managed.
Council is seeking feedback on the draft plan.
The streamlined new plan has been prepared in accordance with state regulations which require councils to develop a plan every five years in consultation with water authorities and the community.
The current 2013 plan has been condensed and the changes proposed in the 2019 version include improved mapping. Council and Coliban Water will provide $20,000 each to implement a new program where septic systems close to waterways and in high density areas within water catchment areas will be inspected proactively to ensure they are in good working order.
