In this section you will find information on how to develop land, connect new properties to Western Water's infrastructure, alter existing connections or obtain information about easements and water pressure.
Connect a new property
You need Western Water's permission before you connect a new property to our water, recycled water and/or sewerage network.
Class A recycled water inspections
Plumbers are required to book inspections for new Class A recycled water connections.
Alter an existing connection
If you're renovating, the location of your sewer or water connections might need to change. This may be because you're moving the location of a shower, toilet, sink or other fixture.
Easements are parts of land that Western Water has legal permission to access for the maintenance or installation of pipes or other assets.
Find out where water or sewer pipes are located.
Water pressure and flow
Before connecting to our water network you may need information about the pressure and flow rates at a property.
In general, subdivided land in Western Water’s service region must be provided with reticulated water, recycled water and/or sewerage services.
The installation of an appropriate backflow prevention containment device ensures the public water supply is protected from unintended cross connections and backflow.
Metering and servicing guidelines
Western Water's metering and servicing guidelines set our water metering conditions for new developments, alterations to existing developments and existing water metering arrangements.
