Darren is set to test the waters

BELINGEN Shire council has appointed a new Environmental Health Officer to conduct water quality inspections.

Darren Honnery has considerable expertise in the field of on-site sewage management, says Director of Environmental Health and Planning Charlie Hannavy.

The sewage management inspection program will commence next month.

It will include advance publicity and will ensure that owners and residents have their sites prepared for inspection.

Affected owners will need to ensure that disposal fields are mown; tanks are cleared of obstructions (shrubs/ornaments on lid); and that lid inspection openings are loosened (for internal inspections).

The inspection cost of $115 per system is the same as for any requested inspections for on-site sewage management systems.

The program is a legislative necessity and the costs are in accordance with the recently adopted policy of council.
