Water and sewer design manuals
Previously, our network assets were designed in accordance with our Water and Sewer Design Manual. We are progressively replacing sections of our internal guidelines with integrated editions of the Water Services Associated of Australia (WSAA) design guidelines.
When designing assets it is the designer's responsibility to collaborate with us to ensure requirements of adopted design standards are suitable for each particular application.
Water and Sewer Design Manual
The following sections of our Water and Sewer Design Manual are currently in use:
- Section 4 - Sewage Pump Stations and Rising Mains - Sept 2008 - See Note 1 below
- Section 5 - Water Pumping Stations – July 2008
Note 1: Section 4 of Water and Sewer Design Manual is to be read in conjunction with the following technical addendum WWPS Technical Addendum - September 2016
Note 2: Section 7 Reservoir Design of the Water and Sewer Design Manual was repealed in April 2021 and has been replaced by STS 409 Potable Water Reservoirs
Guidelines on asset operation and maintenance costs
We have repealed the Operating and Maintenance Cost Estimation Guideline.
This document provided general advice on costs associated with various water and sewer assets and also documented assumptions on projected electricity rates charged by us.
It was primarily used to compare the cost impact of different servicing options. A replacement document is currently in development.
