Sewer

All forms of household sewage can be infectious and pose a potential risk to human and environmental health. When managed properly through treatment processes, sewage can be recycled and used in a safe and environmentally sustainable way (in line with the Australian guidelines for water recycling).

Eurobodalla Shire Council has five sewage treatment plants that operate under environmental licenses. Most of the sewage from homes and businesses connected to Council's sewer system is treated at our plants at Surf Beach, Tomakin, Moruya, Kianga and Bingi (Tuross).
