A domestic wastewater management plan (DWMP) is the key tool through which councils meet their obligations under the Environment Protection Act 1970 and the State Environmental Protection Policy (Waters of Victoria).

A domestic wastewater system is a reference to any system for the bacterial, biological, chemical or physical treatment of sewage, and includes all tanks, beds, sewers, drains, pipes, fittings, appliances and land in connection with the system.
Other wastewater systems include package treatment plants and composting toilets. These systems must have a certificate of approval from the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), and be installed and maintained in accordance with the EPA certification conditions and the manufacturers’ instructions.
Visit the EPA website for more information or call Councils Environmentall Health Department on 1800 065 993.
