An independent contractor has been appointed by District Council of Mallala to carry out a survey of the conditions of septic tanks and soakage trenches in the Two Wells township.
This survey will help identify and give an accurate number of septic systems within the existing township as well as highlight those which are failing.
A letter informing residents of the inspection will be sent out this month, with the inspection period proposed to start on Wednesday September 25 for about a week.
DCM’s general manager for corporate and community services, Peter Sellar, said the inspection process was the first step in designing a community waste management scheme for the Two Wells township.
In DCM’s long term financial plan council has set aside $2.2 million for the project, with significant grant funding also being sought.
