The frequency of inspections is dependent upon the outcome of the initial inspection and risk assessment. For example, on-site sewage management systems that have good buffer distances, are identified as having been serviced at regular intervals and are performing well (based on the reports from the service agent to which you refer), may be categorised as low risk and subject to less inspections by Council.

  • A low-risk system could mean only one routine Council inspection every 15 years.
  • A medium-risk system could mean only one routine Council inspection every 10 years.
  • A high-risk system could mean only one routine Council inspection every 5 years.

These timeframes are anticipated unless a complaint is received that requires immediate follow-up from a public health / risk to community perspective.
