Each stage of your development will pass through a live connection phase, referred to as the On-maintenance phase. In this phase you pay your Infrastructure Charges and receive your Certificate of Completion for the stage.
A Major Connection Certifier and a Construction Certifier work together to assist with arranging live connections, final inspections, network testing and managing handover of infrastructure to Unitywater.
Live connections to our water network are carried out exclusively by our Private Works team. Your contractor is able to make a connection to our sewer network, under the supervision of a Major Connection Certifier and Construction Certifier. This gives you greater control over the time it takes to get connected.
Your Construction Certifier inspects the works
If defects are found these need to be rectified, and the works re-inspected.
Unitywater establishes the live network connection for this stage
This is undertaken by our Private Works team.
Your certifier prepares your Certificate of Completion for that stage
And submits to Unitywater for approval.
Your development enters the On-maintenance period for that stage
This is usually 12 months long.
What you need:
- Final survey plan
- Payment of Infrastructure Charges
- Payment of live connection fee
- Development plans/designs
- Your certifier submits an On-Maintenance Request.
After receiving your Certificate of Completion and the network is live, you remain financially liable for any defects identified.
