Did you know that some areas within the City of Playford do not have access to mains sewerage?
Those who live on rural allotments, or within the townships of Angle Vale, One Tree Hill and Virginia (except the subdivision “Virginia Grove - The Green” which is serviced by SA Water sewerage infrastructure), must rely on an on-site wastewater system to treat and dispose of their wastewater.
If you own, or are looking to buy a property with an on-site wastewater system, understanding the type of system and the correct operation and maintenance requirements associated with it is critically important. Misuse of an on-site wastewater system can result in potential health risks, additional costs and inconvenience, and possible enforcement action by Council.
For more information about on-site wastewater systems, including general information about what the system is, maintenance requirements and tips, how to lodge an application for works and associated fees, refer to the Related Links menu on the left hand side.
If you have any questions relating to on-site wastewater systems, or wish to lodge a complaint, you can do so by contacting the City of Playford’s Customer Care team on (08) 8256 0333 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
