Water meter connections and disconnections

To connect or disconnect a water meter to a residential or commercial property, you will need to lodge an application.

If you are applying for a commercial water meter connection, please include a copy of the Council approved hydraulic plans. Lot numbers and all boundary pegs need to be clearly visible on the property before water meters are installed.

In some cases you will need to install a conduit by under-road boring.


You can apply online now. If you sign up as a registered user, you won’t have to enter your details each time you lodge an application.

Alternatively, you can download and print the application form and send it to us.

We will review your application and assess whether it can be approved. After we approve your application, we will advise you of the applicable fees. Works will only be scheduled after we have received your payment.
