Under state legislation, the City of Ballarat manages the installation and ongoing operation of septic tank systems in our municipality. As part of this responsibility, the City of Ballarat is required to develop a Domestic Wastewater Management Plan, which is reviewed every five years.

A new draft plan has been developed for the period 2019-2024.

The focus of the plan is on managing the challenges posed by 550 septics located within the sewered towns and cities in the municipality.

In addition, you can view the October 2018 Independent Audit conducted on the 2013-18 DWMP.
