On-site domestic wastewater management

We have been working for a number of years to improve and raise the profile of domestic wastewater management in Victoria.

In 2005, we developed the Model municipal domestic wastewater management plan (Word - 866KB) with assistance from EPA Victoria. It remains a highly relevant guide for councils developing their own domestic waste water management plans.
