Many properties in urban areas will have the option to join our existing water network. The primary requirement for a property is that it's fronted by one of our mains.
If you're property isn't fronted by a main or a rural pipeline, you may also be eligible to apply to extend our water network.
What to do
Step 1: Check if urban water services are available in your area
Use our Service Area Map (2.5MB) or the table below to check your water supply.
Step 2: Find out if your property is fronted by a main
Step 3: Find a licensed plumber
Only a licensed plumber can connect you to a main. This is to ensure the safety of our water system and the community. You'll need to find a plumber before applying for permission to connect, as you're required to supply their details on the application form.
Step 4: Apply to connect
If you're ready to connect to our water services you'll need permission from us before you begin any works.
