Under section 53M(7) of the Environment Protection

Act 1970, EPA assesses for generic approval on-site

wastewater treatment systems designed to discharge

5000 litres or less of sewage a day. A municipal

council (the council) can only issue permits for the

installation of wastewater treatment systems that

have been approved by EPA. The council upon

application assesses the suitability of an EPA

approved system for a specific site. If EPA has not

approved the system, then the Council cannot permit

it to be installed.

EPA issues certificates for approved systems, with

conditions attached, to ensure the systems operate

satisfactorily. For example, an Aerated Wastewater

Treatment System (AWTS) will require regular

maintenance and testing to verify its ongoing

performance and the EPA approval will include

conditions to ensure this monitoring and testing takes

place. The list of approved systems and their

conditions of approval can be found on the EPA

website (www.epa.vic.gov.au). (Wastewater

treatment devices of a larger capacity are assessed

individually under an EPA works approval application).

The guidelines contain the minimum performance

criteria that must be met for an Aerated Wastewater

Treatment System (AWTS) to be approved by EPA.
