As part of the operating and maintenance of Council's Community Wastewater Management System (CWMS), Council provides a septic tank desludging program. Properties within the townships of Loxton, Waikerie, Kingston-on-Murray and Moorook are connected to CWMS. To prevent sludge passing into Council drains, our contractors attend each property on a programmed basis to remove accumulated sludge from the tanks.
Council's desludging contractor will notify you when your tank is due to be emptied. You will need to completely expose the septic lid and ensure access to the property is available. If you are unsure of the location of your septic tank in most instances Council has plans that can be provided to you.
