  • Unsewered areas of Corowa, Howlong, Mulwala, Oaklands and Urana; and
  • Properties on less than 4000m2 of land in Coreen, Collendina, Buraja, Lowesdale, Hopefield, Rennie, Savernake.

This information session is for you if:

  • You want to know more about how your septic works;
  • You are unsure whether your septic is working satisfactorily;
  • You want to know what regular checks and maintenance you should be undertaking on your septic;
  • You want to be prepared before the inspection of your septic.

These information sessions are being delivered by Building and Environmental Services Today (B.E.S.T.).  Owner of B.E.S.T., Neil Smith has worked in the environmental health and building field for over 35 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience with septic systems. Take advantage of Neil’s knowledge and experience and learn how you can improve the performance of your septic system.
