Connection fees

Connection fees

To connect to our network you’ll need to pay a fee. The fee for a standard connection is determined by the type and size of the water, sewerage or fire service you request. You can nominate the size of service you would like on your application form or we can advise you of the most suitable size.

If difficult construction conditions exist (such as existing services are within the construction path, underground water, rock or tree roots, or requirements for traffic management), the connection will be deemed non-standard and you will be required to pay additional construction costs. This will be outlined in a fixed quotation provided in our offer to connect. Any financial quote provided will be valid for 60 calendar days from the date of issue.

This cost estimate is a desktop analysis only, and subject to a site visit once a connection application is submitted.

Extension and capacity upgrade charges

If an extension or capacity upgrade is required to service your property, we will explain this process to you and:

  • Contact you before progressing your application to advise a capacity upgrade or extension is required.
  • Charge you an application fee to undertake investigations and designs for the extension and/or capacity upgrade, to provide you with an estimate.
  • Provide you with an estimate for the cost of the work.

If you choose to proceed we will send you an invoice for both the connection and capacity upgrades and/or extension.

Having received your full payment, we will complete the work to enable your connection.
