Before you start building or excavating, you must ensure that your work will not have any impact on Sydney Water assets by going through a 2 step
Step 1: Submit your plans to a Quick Check agent
You must submit your building plans and/or your excavation plans to a Quick Check agent. A Quick Agent is authorised by Sydney Water to check your
plans to see whether or not there will be an impact on any Sydney Water assets, including pipes, structures and easements.
Often there's no impact, so you'll get immediate approval from the Quick Check agent. Approval is provided by stamping the plans and paying a small
Step 2: Engage a Water Servicing Coordinator
If the Quick Check agent finds there is an impact - or a possible impact because the works are close to or over Sydney Water assets - then they
will refer you to a Water Servicing Coordinator.
A Water Servicing Coordinator will then work with all related parties to determine the impact and provide you with the requirements you will need
to meet before your application can be submitted to Sydney Water for approval.
Examples of this type of work include:
- Coordinate to show the relevant Sydney Water sewer on the plans and determine Zone of Influence;
- Complete the Requirements form;
- Carry out any required inspections; and
- Submit a complete Package to Sydney Water Corporation for approval.
