Seqwater owns and operates the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme, a network of more than 200 kilometres of pipeline, three advanced water treatment plants and related infrastructure across South East Queensland. This infrastructure is mostly protected by registered easements shared with a variety of landowners including residents, industry and governments.
Lodging an application
Seqwater must be able to access the easement and infrastructure in our easements in order to ensure the integrity of the pipeline, conduct maintenance and ensure public safety. It is an offence to interfere with, build over, interfere with access to, change the cover over, or change the surface of the land to cause ponding over an access chamber to our infrastructure, without Seqwater's written consent.
If you live or work near an easement and are planning on undertaking works you must submit a works application to Seqwater.
Seqwater recommends the seeking of independent legal, town planning and engineering advice before undertaking any major works within Seqwater's infrastructure corridor.You should also contact Dial Before You Dig to find out if the easement is shared by any other parties (e.g. Powerlink or Energex).
