We need to talk

Check out the issues we’re currently seeking feedback on and tell us what you think.

Our trade waste and wastewater bylaw helps us to regulate discharge of industrial/commercial waste, and the drainage of wastewater (sewage) from households. It contains rules around:

  • Storage and transport of hazardous substances
  • Consents for discharging trade waste and how they will be given
  • Disposal of trade waste from tankers (e.g. septic tank contents or industrial waste)
  • Accidental discharge or spillage of trade waste
  • System of charging fees and invoicing
  • Connecting to our domestic wastewater (sewerage) system
  • Disconnection from our wastewater (sewerage) system
  • Building or excavating over buried services or near public sewers
  • Technical details and requirements for wastewater
