Licensed contractors

A licensed contractor is an individual who is known by Council to possess the required knowledge, skill and safety awareness to connect to and work on Council's live reticulation networks for:

  • Water supply
  • Wastewater
  • Stormwater 

They are licensed via an approval and monitoring process. Companies that employ a licensed contractor are known as approved contractors. However, the license is awarded to the individual, not the company.

A – Water live: 20mm, 25mm and 50mm connections to mains up to and including 150mm internal diameter 
B – Water general: All size connections to all size mains 
C – Hydrant use: Permits the use of a fire hydrant
