Accessing the wastewater network

To gain entry to our wastewater network for any purpose you will need our authorisation first. Examples of activities include:

  • checking the depth of a manhole

  • raising or lowering a manhole

  • making CCTV footage


We will only authorise people who:

  • meet all the minimum requirements as per our wastewater access request form

  • follow health and safety procedures that comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015

  • have the required immunisations, and

  • are trained to use a gas detector.
