Installation of an onsite waste disposal system will require council consent and must comply with conditions relevant to the location of the site and soakage available.

Contact a suitably qualified person experienced in the field of on-site domestic-wastewater systems to select an on-site domestic wastewater disposal system that has a performance certificate issued by Water New Zealand or other certifying authority acceptable to Council.
