Requirements for Pressure Sewer Systems

Requirements for Pressure Sewer Systems

A Pressure Sewer System is an alternative method of sewage collection to the principally installed Gravity Sewer System.

Possible usage of a Pressure Sewer System is subject to approval by SA Water.

The developer (or his consultant) is required to provide sufficient information to enable a proper assessment to be undertaken.

If approved, the WSAA Pressure Sewerage Code of Australia (WSA 07-2007) is used as the basis for design and construction of a pressure sewer system. SA Water has some additional requirements which are detailed in the SA Water Supplement to WSA 07-2007.

The WSAA drawings cover the more detailed requirements and provide ‘deemed to comply’ solutions.
