Illegal Connections into the Main Sewer
All connections into the City's main sewer system must be registered with and inspected by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. 
If a connection is found and has not been inspected and passed by the City you may be required at your own cost or the cost of the owner of the property, to have the connection exposed so a City officer can inspect the connection. 
If the connection is found to be non-compliant you or the owner will be required to have the connection fixed or re-installed to meet AS3500 standards.
