You will require this licence if you are a corporation (other than a public water utility) and intend to construct, maintain or operate any water industry infrastructure.
Water industry infrastructure is water infrastructure or sewerage infrastructure used for the production, treatment, filtration, storage, conveyance or reticulation of water.
Specifically, this licence entitles you to:
- carry out work on or under public roads and public reserves to construct water industry infrastructure
- require landowners to stop trees and other structures on their land from damaging their infrastructure
- retain ownership of all water industry infrastructure you construct, whether or not you own the land in, on or over which it is situated
- appoint meter readers to enter private premises to read meters that measure the supply of water
Please be aware that your licence may be subject to conditions.
You are encouraged to discuss your licence application with the Agency prior to formally submitting your application.
