Albury City Onsite Sewage Management Plan and Fact Sheets

Onsite sewage management Plan - Albury

Albury City Council’s On-Site Sewage Management (OSSM) Plan has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the NSW Office of Local Government following regulatory reforms in 1998. These reforms required Local Government to regulate and supervise the performance of OSSM systems more effectively.

The OSSM Plan and subsequent guidelines outlines Council’s monitoring program to assist property owners to maintain their OSSM system in a satisfactory operating condition.
