Minor water and sewer works approvals | Brisbane City Council

Minor water and sewer works approvals

From 1 July 2014, legislative changes have enabled minor water and sewerage works to be managed under Queensland Urban Utilities' Third Party Certification Scheme. Works that meet the minor water and sewer works criteria and other works deemed to be suitable for the minor water and sewer process do not need an operational works approval. This will be advised on your Queensland Urban Utilities water approval.

Endorsed engineers

If water and sewer works have been conditioned as minor, there is no need to apply to Council for approval. An endorsed engineer under Queensland Urban Utilities' Third Party Certification Scheme should be engaged who will:

  • design the works, supervise the construction and certify that QUU standards have been met
  • enter into an agreement with QUU to provide the required connections.

More information about the steps in this process can be found at Queensland Urban Utilities.

For a list of QUU endorsed consultants, please contact QUU on 13 26 57 or visit Queensland Urban Utilities.
