Register your Septic Tank before 28th September and save €45

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

All owners of domestic waste water treatment systems, including septic tanks, must register with their local authority on or before 1st February 2013. 

If you register on or before 28th September next, the registration fee is only €5. 

Registration between 29th September 2012 and 1st February 2013 will cost €50.

Failure to register by 1st February 2013 is an offence which carries a maximum fine of €5000. If your septic tank is located in Fingal, you must register it with Fingal County Council, in any of the following ways:

Online at

By calling in person to Fingal Offices at County Hall Swords, or Civic Offices Blanchardstown.

By posting completed registration forms to PO Box 12204, Dublin 7. Registration forms are available online at, at Council offices, libraries or Citizens Information Centres, or by calling LoCall 1890 800 800 to request a form. The Water Services (Amendment) Act 2012 requires water services authorities to maintain a register of domestic waste water treatment systems in their functional areas. The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) has developed a central on-line registration system and will manage the system on a shared-service basis for the water services authorities.

Under the Act, owners of domestic waste water treatment systems are required to ensure that their systems are on the register. Your registration will contribute to the protection of Ireland's ground and surface waters.

All septic tanks and other types of treatment and disposal systems for domestic waste water should be registered not later than 1st February 2013.

The Environmental Protection Agency is developing a national risk based inspection system for all domestic treatment systems to begin in 2013.
