Find out the fees relating to the connection of water and fire services, water service relocations and disconnections, and for upgrading or downgrading water services.

Service connections and relocations

Perth region

Charges relating to connection fees apply only in the Perth Region, except where special circumstances apply where a quote is required.

Other regions

All connections in non-metropolitan regions must be quoted.

Special circumstances

A quote may be required for connections such as water services, fire services, relocations, and downgrading or upgrading a water service in a built up area such as a central business district. Charges will need to be assessed on a case by case basis in these areas due to the costs of traffic management, access and restoration.
