Water Service Connections

The Council provides stormwater, sewer and water connections. A connection is the piece of pipe that joins your property to the various networks. Applications for a connection are handled by the Asset Management group at the Council.

The Council’s underground services maintenance contractor is the only party, authorised to install new connections.

The cost of a new connection includes the physical works cost and a development levy fee.

The physical works cost is dependent on the length of pipeline between the service main and the boundary.

To apply for a service connection, complete the application form referenced in the related documents below.
