HOW TO APPLY FOR A PRESSURE SEWER SYSTEM ON YOUR PROPERTY

Apply to install a pressure sewer system is a twofold process.  The supply and installation of the pressure sewer system components are assessed, quoted and installed by Council’s Water and Sewer Group.  The application to install an Onsite Sewerage Management System and the associated fees is a legislative requirement section 68 of the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) and is the responsibility of Council’s Planning and Environment Group. 

To apply for a pressure sewer system on your property:

  • Contact a Customer Service Officer to determine if pressure sewer is available to the property
  • Complete and submit a Pressure Sewer Quotation Request to Council’s Water and Sewer Group.  Applications must include site plan and proposed floor plan
  • Council’s Water and Sewer Group will conduct a site visit, investigate any site issues, and prepare a pricing and installation schedule
  • Sign and return the Installation, Maintenance and Service Agreement and confirm the proposed location of the pressure sewer system components
  • Council’s Water and Sewer Group will execute the agreement, stamp the plans and provide the system specifications for lodgement of the Section 68 Application for Installation and Operations of On-Site Sewerage Management System with Council’s Planning and Environment Group. 

On approval of the Section 68 Application, Council’s Water and Sewer Group will raise and invoice for the supply and installation of the pressure sewer system and liaise with you to plan the installation of the system.  Payment must be made in full prior to installation.

Once installation is complete Council’s Water and Sewer Group will organise for the annual maintenance fees to be raised against the property.  The first year will be set on a pro-rata basis.
