Icon Water water supply and sewerage standards

  • The Water Supply and Sewerage Standards (WSSS) are now based on WSAA codes: WSA-02 Gravity Sewerage Code of Australia, WSA-03 Water Supply Code of Australia, and WSA-04 Sewage Pumping Station Code of Australia.  The Icon Water Supplements to WSA-02 and WSA-03 are available for download via the web-links below and these supplements take precedence over the individual codes.  Icon Water’s supplement to WSA-04 will be made available to the relevant parties (e.g. designers and constructors) who are providing sewage pumping stations for Icon Water when the need arises.  Even though we have published supplements, designers and constructors will still need to be familiar with each individual code and these can be purchased directly from the WSAA website online store.
  • ** Updated 2023 ** Starting August 2023, Icon Water requires 100% CCTV inspections for all newly constructed sewer mains, in addition to adhering to other requirements outlined in section 21 of the supplement to the gravity sewer code. It's essential to recognise that any failure to provide complete and accurate CCTV information and reports (based on the WSA 05 requirements) for newly constructed assets will lead to delays in both the project completion and the acceptance of the asset.

Deviation from Standards

Deviation from Standards - Checklist and form

  • Developers (and their nominated agents such as consulting engineers and constructors) are required to comply with the requirements of Icon Water’s new Asset Creation and Acceptance Process document.  This document describes the process for interacting with Icon Water depending upon the nature of the development proposed.  This document in-conjunction with the Water and Sewerage Service and Installation Rules provides overarching compliance details which describes design and construction requirements (as well as network protection requirements) associated with Icon Water assets.  These documents can be downloaded below and the accompanying forms can be downloaded under the “Forms” dropdown menu at the bottom of this webpage.

Water and Sewerage Service and Installation Rules

  • Plumbers and drainers whose scope of works is limited to the installation of water meters and consumer premises plumbing from the property connection (aka “tie”) point do not need to purchase WSAA codes or refer to the Icon Water WSA 02 and WSA 03 supplements. Instead, we have published a small specification for this purposes and this is available for download via the web-link below:

STD-SPE-M-006 Requirements for Property Service Connections and Water Meters
Approved Product List for Sub-metering Arrangement

  • A set of standard drawings (aka “the SD Series”) as well as additional specifications compliment the documents listed above.  Compliance with these drawings and specifications is also a mandatory requirement when designing and constructing water supply and sewerage assets for Icon Water.  These drawings and specifications can be downloaded via the dropdown menus at the bottom of this webpage.
