Sydney Water Minor Works
WHAT WE DO
Sewer Sidelines –
Sewer sidelines connect the Sydney Water sewer mains to individual properties. There are multiple new and existing dwellings requiring this type of connection. Working hand in hand with the Builder/Owner and WSC Designer, SSC are able to assist with this service being a listed provider.
Sewer Junctions –
New Junctions can be required when subdividing and adding new connections to existing mains. SSC can provide sewer junctions to Sydney Water sewer mains and have dealt with a vast variety of junctions as well as complex connections. Our experience is unchallenged among the industry.
Sewer Encasement –
Any construction over the zone of influence or existing sewer requires an encasement of the existing sewer. Sewer encasement provides strength to the existing sewer and can prevent future leaks. SSC are listed providers for Sydney Water Minor Works and can provide sewer encasement services.
Once you have done your Section 73 with a Water Service Coordinating Company, you are then able to engage SSC to do all Minor Work constructions for the Section 73. Once all construction work is completed and inspected by Sydney Water/ Water Service Coordinator, a WACK report is completed and sent over to the Water Service Coordinator (WSC), who will then provide you with your subdivision certificate/Section 73.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’m planning to build, develop or subdivide – do I need a Sydney Water Section 73 Certificate?
- You may need a Section 73 Certificate if your development or subdivision will impact on Sydney Water’s systems.
- You do not need a Section 73 Certificate if you are constructing a house which is replacing an existing dwelling or altering/extending a house (but you should get your building plans checked and stamped at a Sydney Water office).
What does Sydney Water do once receiving a Section 73 Application?
- Once Sydney Water has received a Section 73 Application investigation takes place to determine the servicing needs of the subdivision or development. If there are any requirements, a response is then prepared by Sydney Water. The Developer is then advised through Sydney Water’s Notice of Requirements. Where Sydney Water finds there are no requirements, a Section 73 Certificate is issued to the Developer.
- However, where Requirements are defined, Officers of the Urban Development Business manage the Process for meeting those requirements and when these have been met the Section 73 Certificate is issued to the Developer.
What is a Section 73 certificate?
- A Section 73 certificate is Sydney Water’s confirmation that you have, constructed works in accordance to the relevant Australian Standards & certifies that the development has the correctly sized sewer mains available for connection.
Do I need a Section 73 for my Development Application (DA)?
- Your local council requires a Development Application unless your proposal is classed as exempt. Most developments affect Sydney Water’s water and/or sewer systems and therefore require you to obtain a Section 73 Certificate. You will need to obtain your certificate where it is a condition of consent, along with meeting all other conditions of consent before you receive final council approval to occupy the building or register your subdivision at the Land Titles Office.
