Maintaining cesspools, septic tanks and sewage treatment plants

If your property isn’t connected to a public sewer, you may have a cesspool, septic tank or a sewage treatment plant. If you have one of these, you don’t have to pay sewerage charges to your water or sewerage company. However, you are responsible for making sure your sewerage system is properly emptied and maintained with manufacturers advising to have tanks emptied every 9-12 months.
