A Vacuum Sewer System is an alternative method of sewage collection to the principally installed Gravity Sewer System.
Possible usage of a Vacuum 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 Vacuum Sewerage Code of Australia (WSA 06-2008) is used as the basis for design and construction of a vacuum sewer system. SA Water has some additional requirements which are detailed in the SA Water Supplement to WSA 06-2008.
The WSAA drawings together with SA Water Drawing 4002-00002-01 cover the more detailed requirements and provide ‘deemed to comply’ solutions.
