Dial Before You Dig

Dial Before You Dig is a referral service for information on locating underground utilities anywhere in Australia.

Fitzroy River Water provides water and sewerage plans that include water meters, abandoned water assets, private sewerage connections and abandoned sewer locations to the public (not including internal sewerage blockage plans) as part of the service.

Building Over/Adjacent to Sewerage Infrastructure

Property owners and developers that want to modify structures or build new structures adjacent to or over Fitzroy River Water’s infrastructure must gain approval from Fitzroy River Water.

The Building Over/Adjacent to Sewerage Infrastructure Policy provides direction on what is required when seeking to gain consent to construct or erect a building or structure over or adjacent to any sewerage infrastructure. Developments will only proceed if they do not obstruct our ability to meet service and maintenance obligations.

The property owner may be required to undertake a risk assessment and investigate alternative locations for the structure before we will assess an application to build over or adjacent to our sewerage infrastructure. Upon receipt of the application, we will discuss the requirements with the applicant to confirm all alternative options have been explored.

Proposals to build or modify structures adjacent to or over existing sewerage infrastructure which is located on our standard alignment (±1.0m) adjacent to the property boundaries will not be approved except in exceptional circumstances. Such approval will be at the discretion of the General Manager or delegate.

Proposals to build or modify structures adjacent to or over existing sewerage infrastructure which is not located on our standard alignment (±1.0m) adjacent to the property boundaries will be considered in line with assessment criteria included in the Technical Guidelines(PDF, 323KB).
