Wastewater: rural and remote residential
This page has information for people who want to install an on-site wastewater system on their residential rural or remote property.
All on-site wastewater systems must be installed by a licensed plumber. If the system is to be installed inside a building control area, the design and installation must be certified.
Alternative on-site wastewater systems
For all alternative on-site systems, your licensed plumber must fill in a notification of installation of an on-site wastewater system before work starts.
When work is finished, they must submit the second part of the form, the notification of installation completion.
The form must be submitted to the Department of Health using the contact details provided.
