The Department of Health is responsible for approving the types of onsite effluent disposal systems allowed in Western Australia. The City's Health Services can generally provide approval for the installation of approved types of Effluent Treatment and Disposal Systems, subject to certain conditions.
The following types of effluent disposal systems have been approved by the WA Health Department and can be installed in the City of Cockburn.
These systems incorporate two septic tanks and either two leach drains or four soak wells. The septic tanks digest all solid and liquid wastes into an effluent which is discharged into the ground via leach drains or soak wells.
These systems utilise septic tanks to process solid and liquid waste, however the effluent is discharged through an amended soil which strips the effluent of nutrients.
These units incorporate aeration systems to aid in the breakdown of waste. The effluent is further treated and disposed of either by surface irrigation, sub-soil dripper or leach drain system. Surface irrigation is not a preferred method of disposal within the City of Cockburn.
Contact Health Services for more information on types of effluent disposal systems on 08 9411 3444 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
