Domestic Wastewater Management
The Hepburn Shire Domestic Wastewater Management Plan (DWMP) outlines how onsite domestic wastewater is managed within the Shire.
The aim of the DWMP is to reduce the risks posed to the local environment, public health and local economy posed by domestic wastewater.
The plan identifies actions that can be undertaken to :
- comply with current on-site domestic wastewater legislation;
- minimise the impacts of domestic wastewater on human health and the environment;
- direct the management of current Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS).
