Sewerage system guidelines

​Most Australian cities and towns are served by sewerage systems. These systems generally convey sewerage from domestic and commercial users to treatment plants, where it is treated and either discharged into receiving environments or re-used.

Guidelines for Sewerage Systems are available to help regulators and sewerage authorities establish measures to manage sewerage and protect public health. These guidelines are part of the National Water Quality Management Strategy.

Five separate guidelines documents cover specific aspects of sewerage system management.
