Connect to existing water/sewer services

If you know your property is currently serviced by existing water and sewer systems and you decide to connect, then follow these simple steps:

 

Step  1

Contact a licensed plumber to discuss the project. They should be able to provide you with estimated costs, timeframe etc.

Search for a plumber

Step 2 If you intend to change you property (ie, sub-divide, build a new home) then contact your local council to see if a town planning permit is required.
Step 3

Obtain an Application for Consent from a Central Highlands Water office or download a form now.

Download Application for Consent

Step 4

Complete an application form, attach supporting documentation and submit it to us at via email

In person: 7 Learmonth Rd, Wendouree VIC 3355

Step 5 Our Development Team will assess your application and notify you, or your plumber, when the Certificate of Consent is ready to send out or pick up.
Step 6

Once you have the Certificate of Consent, work on your property’s connection can begin. All construction fees should be paid to your plumber.

 

Important:

The application form must be signed by the current owner of the property (in most cases this will be you unless you are in the process of buying the property).

A plan of proposed works must be attached.

Application fees are required to be paid at the time of application or before consent is issued. Application fees/charges may vary depending on the project, and additional charges may apply.
