Get SepticSmart



Griffith City Council was successful in securing a grant for our Get SepticSmart project under the third round of the NSW Environmental Trust’s Environmental Education Program.

The Get SepticSmart project aims to educate householders and businesses about operating and maintaining their OSMS in a safe, sustainable and responsible manner.  The project aims to reduce the number of pollution incidents caused by failing systems to help improve and protect the environment and the public health of the local community.

If you have any queries in regards to the Get SepticSmart project, please do not hesitate to contact Griffith City Council’s Environment, Health & Sustainability Unit on (02) 6962 8100.
