The primary goal of a wastewater drainage system is to convey wastewater from urban areas to the Council wastewater treatment plants. The management of wastewater has a functional role in the urban and rural environments and also has important cultural, ecological and environmental implications. The core design principals of a wastewater system must be carefully managed in order to avoid problems relating to public health and pollution of water bodies. If the wastewater system is managed in this way, the impact on the safety of the public and the environment is less.
Understanding the implications of the future land use and its design elements, such as the extent of effluent disposal is important and shall be taken into account.
