Information on Septic Tanks

A septic tank is a tank, typically underground, in which sewage is collected and allowed to decompose through bacterial activity before draining by means of a soakaway.

In Marlborough there are guidelines through the Proposed Environment Plan on design, installation and management of new on-site wastewater management systems.
