This consultation has now closed. 

The draft Domestic Wastewater Management Strategy 2017-2021 is designed to assist Council in achieving best practice in the management of domestic wastewater. The draft Strategy addresses the priorities identified in the Domestic Wastewater Management Plan (2013).

The overall vision of the Strategy is to: ‘Protect public health, the natural environment and the amenity of the municipality by promoting environmental best practice in the management of domestic wastewater’.

Under the State Environment Protection Policy (Waters of Victoria), Councils are legislatively required to develop a Domestic Wastewater Management Plan in conjunction with the local water authority and community. Councils are the primary agency responsible for the management of domestic wastewater.
