Fines and removal
The law prohibits landowners and occupiers from interfering with utility infrastructure, for example by blocking access or building too close or on top of infrastructure. Damaging or interfering with underground pipes could be expensive and dangerous. Structures that block access may need to be removed so that maintenance and meter reading can be carried out.
If you build a structure that is too close or interferes with Icon Water infrastructure, you may have to pay for it to be removed and you could also be fined up to $5,500.
