Waste water - septic systems

Managing waste water on your property is critical to keeping your family and the environment healthy.

There are several types of on-site wastewater management systems.  All of them are required to be registered with Council.  Council will carry out regular inspections to make sure the system is working properly and will charge inspection fees for this service.

Water for the home

Your health depends on having water safe for drinking, showering and washing.  It is up to you to maintain it to an appropriate quality.  The CSIRO has made some information available and we have included some information  about testing and managing your water quality.

Council has used this funding to commission reports on water resources, water quality, population pressures and climate variability in the western catchments of Palerang. A fifth report, Snapshot on Sustainability: Report on water management, institutions and issues for Palerang describes the institutional and legislative framework that water planning operates within and provides a brief summary of the other reports.
