Onsite sewage management systems (such as septics) process waste water generated from the household where the property is not connected to Council’s reticulated sewerage system.
On-site sewage management systems are like miniature sewage treatment plants. If they are misused, overworked, or incorrectly maintained, they will fail and cause problems such as:
Public health risks due of people to exposure to bacteria, viruses, parasites and other disease-causing organisms from raw sewage. Diseases from exposure to raw sewage include:
A badly maintained septic can cause impacts up to 50 km downstream in the right conditions. Research by the State Government in the mid 1990’s found that 20% of households in regional NSW have some type of on-site sewage management system and 70% of these at the time failed to meet public health and environmental standards.
Aerated Wastewater Treatment System (AWTS)
If you own or rent a house that is not connected to the reticulated sewerage system (the sewer) you will have an on-site sewage management system located on your property accepting, treating and dispersing the wastewater from your home within the confines of your land.
