If you are building a swimming pool, a deck or shed, excavating property, installing a driveway or your development is over or near a water or sewer main, you may require a Service Protection Report (Pegout).

The sewer and water infrastructure in and around Sydney are an asset owned by Sydney Water and it is their responsibility to ensure that these sewer and water pipes are protected against any kind of damage.

If your proposed development site is located over or near a Sydney Water asset, Sydney Water must approve your plans before you start work.

Assessment

Usually as part of any new development, a prerequisite of the Section 73 Compliance Certificate process will require your plans to be assessed.

A Service Protection Report - also known as a Sewer Pegout, enables the accurate plotting of Sydney Water assets onto your building plans which will then determine if your development area is within the Zone of Influence (ZOI) and if there would be any potential for damage or stress to these pipes during construction.

A Sewer Pegout is usually needed if you are:

  • building a swimming pool, deck, gazebo or carport.
  • building a granny flat.
  • excavating your property.
  • installing a driveway or large paved area.
  • developing or building over a water or sewer main.

Process of a Sewer Pegout

A trained sewer pegout technician from All Line Plumbing will attend the site and locate the sewer main and any other Sydney Water asset within the proposed development area. A sewer pegout report is then prepared detailing the information collected.

This report will generally outline the location and environment of the existing Sydney Water asset and details information such as the pipe type, depth, service of the asset (sewer, water, stormwater), size, structure and strata which the asset is laid (such as clay, sand or rock).

If your development is inside the ZOI: a design detailing the steps needed to protect the Sydney Water asset will need to be developed in accordance with the Sydney Water standards. A Water Servicing Coordinator (WSC) may also be required to form the application using the development plans in conjunction with the sewer pegout report.

What is a Water Servicing Coordinator (WSC)?

A WSC is a listed provider for Sydney Water who can review your building plans, help with the documentation needed for your application and specify the Sydney Water asset protection options and requirements.
