Overview of Liquid Trade Waste Regulation (2 days)
The department offers local water utilities in regional NSW a Liquid Trade Waste Regulation course. Compliance with the Best-Practice Management of Water Supply and Sewerage Guidelines, (August 2007) requires water utilities to implement an appropriate liquid trade waste policy; issue an approval under the Local Government Act 1993 for each liquid trade waste discharger to its sewerage system; and to implement best-practice sewerage and trade waste pricing. These requirements comprise the NSW Framework for Regulation of Sewerage and Trade Waste, which is set out in the 2009 Liquid Trade Waste Regulation Guidelines.
