On-site Wastewater Management System Application Form

Some properties within the City of Greater Geelong region are un-sewered. If you are planning to build on property that is un-sewered, you will need to install an On-site Wastewater Management System (OWMS), previously called septic tank systems, to provide sewerage to the home.

To do this you will need to obtain a permit to install or alter an OWMS and permission to use the system. 

These permits are issued under delegation from the Environment Protection Authority.
