Land Capability Assessments and septic tanks
A Land Capability Assessment is a report that assesses the viability of onsite wastewater management on a site where there is no reticulated sewerage.
It considers the risks that a wastewater system presents to public health, environment, and local amenity. It provides vital information on site-specific limitations for onsite wastewater management, as well as suitable management strategies to reduce impacts of the system on its surrounds.
To find out when an LCA is needed, who should prepare it and what it should contain, read the Land Capability Assessments Explanation of Requirements. Land Capability Assessment consultants available to the local area can be found by searching the Yellow Pages or internet.
