Water and sewerage capital contributions code calculator

Please note before using

This calculator is designed to provide an indication of Class 2 infrastructure charges that may be payable for an in-precinct development. The charge calculated is not a quote and the actual Class 2 infrastructure charge may be more or less than this amount. Under the code Icon Water makes the final assessment of eligibility and EP values.

Please note that, depending on the requirements of your development, other charges may also be payable such as hydraulic network relocation costs, connection charges, or other amounts as set out in our miscellaneous fees and charges schedule.

Step 1: Inside or outside of precinct

Is your development within the orange shaded area in this map? You can also use the high resolution map.

Please continue to Step 2 - the WSCC charge will apply.

If you lodged your Development Application with the ACT Government today, Class 2 and 3 out of precinct rules will apply. See here for more information.

If your development is delayed, you should check the map again at that time as the precinct boundary will move to include new developments each year (any annual updates will take effect as of 1 July).

Is your development within the shaded area in this map?
Step 2

What financial year did you, or will you, lodge the DA for the development?

Step 3: Calculation of existing EP

The WSCC charge applies to the net increase in EP on your development site.
This means we need to calculate the EP of your existing and new developments, and take the difference.

Please type in how many units of the following are on your site before development.

If you aren't sure how many units, an estimate is fine - this calculator is a guide only

This number is an indication of possible charges for a development, and is not a quote or invoice. If it is more than 12 months after the date the application for DA was lodged, the precinct charge may be increased by an amount of 2.5% per annum.
