Approval to operate an OSSM system
An "Approval to Operate" must be obtained from Council for new on-site sewage management systems prior to commissioning the system. This can be applied for by selecting the relevant box on the Application for s68 Approval - On-site Sewage Management System form.

If you have an existing system that does not have an "Approval to Operate" then it is not registered with Council.  You may register your system and obtain an "Approval to Operate", by lodging an Application for s68 Approval - On-site Sewage Management System form.

Failure to register your system with Council may result in the issue of a penalty infringement notice.

An "Approval to Operate" is valid for one year.  Council will send out an extension of your Approval to Operate in August each year.  A copy of your "Approval to Operate" may be obtained prior to August 2014 by contacting Council.
