A service connection application, or SCA, must be completed and an approval issued for all connections to Council owned infrastructure.
Connections to Council's water supply system are normally arranged through the subdivision or building consent process. All connections to Council infrastructure (with the exception of a vehicle crossing) must be carried out by a Council approved contractor listed below.

If you have any questions regarding approved contractors, please contact Brian Brown at Tauranga City Council.
In June 2022 Council launched an online SCA form. The centralised, single format application has clearly outlined mandatory fields, and is quick and easy for a customer to follow.
The online form is below and replaces all previous SCA collection methods.
For applications as part of a Building Consent:
Upon receipt of a copy of your Service Connection Application, please upload this document and any associated plans, directly to the AlphaOne portal, in order to be reviewed by our Building Development Engineering team as part of your Building Consent application.
