We want to hear your thoughts on wastewater management

Did you know that Yarra Ranges contains approximately 22,000 active onsite wastewater (septic) systems - the second-largest number of any council in Victoria?

The Draft Wastewater Management Plan (the Plan) has been developed to assist with managing on-site wastewater, so it can be treated and retained with minimal risk to public health and the environment.

The Plan and related Action Plan identifies risks and outlines criteria and processes for inspections and assessments of new applications.

The Plan explains the parameters around Council's legislative and regulatory responsibilities and the collaborative partnerships with other key stakeholders, such as Yarra Valley Water, South East Water and various state government authorities.
