Land capability assessments

Geelong, Ballarat and Victoria-wide

Land capability assessment reports are site investigations carried out for the installation of septic systems on house sites where reticulated sewerage is not provided – commonly in rural areas.

The risk of contamination of groundwater and nearby waterways must be assessed to ensure a residential development does not adversely impact on the quality of the environment.

If you live in a rural area you might also be interested in finding out more about Bushfire Attack Levels (BALs) and soil tests before you build or renovate in the Geelong, Ballarat, Werribee, Melton or South Melbourne regions, and elsewhere in country Victoria.
