Permit to Use an Apparatus for the Treatment of Sewage - Western Australia

Description

You will require this permit if you intend to use an apparatus for the treatment of sewage after it has been constructed or installed. A sewerage apparatus includes septic tanks, aerobic treatment units, compost toilets and any other apparatus used for the treatment of sewage.

When the construction or installation of a sewage apparatus is complete, the Council must be notified. An environmental health officer will inspect the apparatus to make sure it conforms to health and safety regulations. If the environmental health officer is not satisfied with the inspection, then they will advise you to complete the necessary works and arrange for a further inspection. This work must be completed within a prescribed time frame.

Prior to the inspection by the environmental health officer, you must fill the apparatus to overflow level with clean water 24 hours before the inspection, and also ensure that all drains, fixtures and fittings are visible.
