Non-metropolitan regions

All connections in non-metropolitan regions must be quoted, except the charges marked (*) for 20mm and 25mm services. A quote may also be required for 20mm or 25mm services in any built up areas, or areas where special circumstances apply.

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.
