A development that has been identified as requiring a Pressure Sewer System will come to Shoalhaven Water through the Development Application process. Prior to issue of a Construction Certificate the applicant must submit a Pressure Sewer Unit – Service Location Plan to Shoalhaven Water for approval, and this will include any modification or relocation works to a unit.
Incomplete Service Location Plans will result in approval delays and potential re-submissions.
On receipt and approval of installation request, an invoice for works will be issued. This must be paid prior to works commencing. On receipt of payment, Shoalhaven Water will install the Pressure Sewer Unit and its components as per the final approved Service Location Plan. Any changes to the proposed layout must be resubmitted prior to installation.
The installation of a Pressure Sewer System can take up to 8 weeks, so planning by customers or developers well ahead is recommended. During installation, Shoalhaven Water reserves the right to alter the position of the pressure sewer pump system and any components if necessary.
Once installed, the Pressure Sewer Unit and all relating components including the alarm/control panel, pumping unit and discharge pipe, are owned and maintained by Shoalhaven Water. At no times are the Pressure Sewer Units or other componentry to be adjusted, serviced, or relocated by any persons other than Shoalhaven Water operations staff.
