We encourage all properties able to connect to the sewer to do so for the environmental and financial benefits. For a limited time, Hunter Water will waive the application fee for connecting your property to the sewer line, and we encourage property owners to take advantage of this cost saving.
We will also be conducting audits of your on-site sewage system to ensure it is performing in a satisfactory manner. The frequency of the audit inspections will depend on the risk of the system and disposal type and may attract a fee.
Should your system be determined to be operating in an unsatisfactory manner and you are located within 75 metres of the sewer line and connection to the sewer is possible, we may serve an order directing you to connect the property to the Hunter Water sewer line.
To aid you in your decision-making, we would encourage you to take into consideration the financial cost of operating your on-site sewage system.
