Request Inspection of Septic System

The Environmental Health Officer inspects and approves all septic tanks at various stages through the installation process. 

  • A Site Inspection is required before a Permit to Install can be issued;
  • A Progress Inspection is required to during the installation before back-filling so we can see that the Septic tank and the effluent lines are installed correctly;
  • A Final Inspection is required when the system is complete.


Council currently has an Environmental Health Officer available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week.  Please provide at least 3-4 days’ notice when planning your installation to ensure a Progress Inspection can be scheduled in whilst the installation is being done before the trenches are backfilled.  As part of your Progress Inspection your photographs of the various stages of your installation can also be used by our Environmental Health Officer.


Before booking a final inspection please make sure you have (or your plumber/contractor has supplied you with) the following.

  • A copy of the Plumbing Industry Certificate;
  • An ‘As Laid’ Site Plan showing the septic system installed;
  • The Manufacturer’s commissioning certificate (if a Treatment Plan was installed);
  • An electrical certificate (if a Pump Well was installed);
  • A signed servicing agreement (if a Treatment Plan was installed).
