Create-Low Pressure Sewer Policy

Consultation has concluded

Council adopted the Low Pressure Sewer Policy at its Ordinary Meeting held on 28 June 2017 following a public exhibition period of six weeks.

The Low Pressure Sewer Policy is designed to be an overarching set of guidelines detailing when and where a low pressure sewer system can be used within the Bellingen Shire, what standards and specification will be used in the design and installation and the roles and responsibilites for the repairs and maintenance of such system(s).

By way of definition a low pressure sewer system is a sewage delivery system which uses the combined pumping action of many small pumping stations to transfer sewage from areas previously found to be difficult to sewer using a conventional gravity sewage collection system. It is generally employed in areas of very flat, rocky, or steep terrain.

The current Low Pressure Sewer Policy was adopted in September 2013 and is required to be readopted in accordance with section 165 (4) of the NSW Local Government Act 1993 within 12 months of the declaration of the poll for the last general election.
