Our Environmental Health team assess a large number of applications for onsite effluent disposal systems, working with installers and land owners to ensure that all systems minimise risks to public health and our environment.
For a list of current approved waste water systems, and list of approved ATU service persons, please see the Department of Health Public Health website on:
