It is now a New South Wales legislated requirement that all On-Site Sewage Management System's have an 'Approval to Operate' licence regardless of the type or age of the system. This means that every property owner with an on-site sewage management system must ensure that they have a current Approval to Operate licence. The property owner must apply to Council to obtain and renew their licence. Following a satisfactory inspection by Council, the on-site sewage management system is granted an 'Approval to Operate' licence for a period of two, three or five years.
Use the Application to Operate a System of Sewage Management for an existing on-site sewage management system.
