Public Notice – On-site Sewage Management Strategy 2017

Richmond Valley Council is proposing changes to the current Onsite Sewage Management and Wastewater Strategy to ensure it is in line with the emerging technologies and updates within the relevant standards and guidelines.

The strategy has been divided into two (2) parts and 8 Appendices. Part A provides information on legislative requirements, aims goals and guiding principles. Part B provides information for consultants and plumbers in regards to the preparation of reports to be submitted to Council and the installation of on-site sewage management systems. The appendices provide greater detail of the type of on-site sewage management systems and disposal methods, site and soil assessment forms, checklists and a manual for the daily disposal model.

The amended OSMS will be exhibited from 4 October 2017 with submissions closing on 1 November 2017.

Documentation on the amended OSMS may be downloaded here or inspected at Council’s Customer Service Centres in Casino and Evans Head, and in the On Exhibition section of Council’s website www.richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au

Any person may make written submissions addressed to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470, or by email to council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au

  • Where a submission is by way of objection the reasons for objecting must be explained.
  • Please note all submissions are public documents.
  • Political donations must be declared. Further information on declaring political donations is available on Council’s website.

The amendments do not alter the existing powers and duties of the Council to regulate the installation of an operation of on-site sewage management systems under Section 68 and Section 124 of the Local Government Act, 1993.

If adopted, this document amends Richmond Valley Council’s 2001 On-site Sewage and Wastewater Management Strategy.
