Floor Level Subject to Water Level

If you are building a dwelling or other habitable building in suburbs or locations zoned as Rural or Special Rural, it may be necessary that you contact the City's Health Team and Planning Team to establish the minimum floor level based on the high water table.

Generally the floor level should be not less than 2metres over the high water table.

The water table may also affect the septic system which inadvertently may influence the pad height for the dwelling. Contact a Health Officer for further information regarding this matter on 9439 0200.
