Types of works that fall under the Sydney Water Minor Sewer Works
As we are Sydney Water accredited in Minor Sewer Works, we are your local sewer main experts in and around Sydney.
Below are some of the sewer minor works that we offer:
Property Connection Points (PCPs)
Inserting Property Connection Points, commonly referred to as junction cut-ins, into existing sewer mains that are less than or equal to DN225mm in diameter.
A common scenario where this is required is when a sewer main is installed inside of the property boundary of the development site and a new connection to sewer main is required to service the site.
MS – Minor Sewer
Constructing up to 25 lineal meters of Property Connection Sewer, also commonly referred to as sewer sideline, that is less than or equal to DN225mm in diameter.
Sewer sidelines are a new pipeline which is extended from an existing sewer main to provide a sewer service to single or multiple properties.
MS – Minor Sewer
Concrete Sewer Encasement
Concrete encasing up 25 lineal meters of sewer main that is less than or equal to DN300mm in diameter.
Concrete encasing a sewer main makes it "maintenance free", which allows you build your structure without the risk of ever having invasive works performed to repair the underlying sewer main.
MS – Minor Sewer
Decommission of Sewer Mains
Sealing redundant points of connection to Sydney Water's sewer and disusing sections of redundant sewer mains.
This is carried out when a Sydney Water sewer asset is no longer needed and can be demolished to allow for future development works.
MS – Minor Sewer
Approvals are carried out by Sydney Water accredited Water Servicing Coordinators and a list of these accredited Water Servicing Coordinators can be found on the Sydney Water website.

How much does Sydney Water Minor Works Cost?
It is not possible to give accurate costing to the Minor Works Sewer construction without first assessing the project specific conditions as there are multiple factors that need to be considered when trying to determine the cost of Sydney Water Minor Works.
The best way to determine the cost of a Sewer Minor Works project is to organise a site inspection by All Line Plumbing. Once the site inspection has been completed the team at All Line Plumbing will be able to provide you with a fixed price quotation for your Sydney Water Minor Works project.
Key factors in Sydney Water Minor Works Cost
Sydney Water's Minor Works encompasses several key factors crucial for understanding the intricacies involved in the financial landscape and project scope. It's imperative to consider the following points:
The location of the works
One of the largest considerations when determining the cost of a minor works project is the location of the works area.
For example, if the sewer is located within a council owned property a Council Road Opening Permit will be required.
The depth of the asset
Due to the Sydney Water sewer mains being installed at varying depths on each project, the depth of the sewer main vastly affects the price.
As the depth of the sewer main increases, more effort will be required to excavate the asset safely, allowing us to carry out the necessary work.
The ground conditions
The ground conditions have a significant impact on the cost and methodology of Sydney Water Minor Works projects. For example;
- Sand can be easy to dig but can become very unstable when digging at depth, so extra support may be needed to excavate the trench safely.
- Clay can be harder to dig through but is a lot more stable than sand.
- If rock is encountered, it may need to be excavated with a hydraulic hammer attachment for the excavator.
All of these types of ground conditions will affect the cost of the project.
