Suspensions and cancellations

As the regulator, we can cancel or suspend an approved recycled water management plan (RWMP) if the recycled water provider has not complied with the plan, a condition of the plan, or a compliance notice. 

We can also cancel, but not suspend, a granted exemption.

Suspending or cancelling an RWMP

The regulator must issue a show cause notice about the proposed action to the recycled water provider. If the regulator decides to suspend or cancel the approved RWMP, the regulator will issue an information notice advising the recycled water provider of the suspension or cancellation. This will take effect on the day the notice is given.

If an approved RWMP has been cancelled, the recycled water provider must submit a new RWMP for approval before recommencing supply.

If an approved RWMP has been suspended, the recycled water provider may apply for an approval to resume supply of recycled water.

We may also:

  • cancel an approved RWMP if the provider has permanently stopped supplying recycled water
  • suspend an RWMP if the recycled water scheme stops the production or supply of recycled water other than as provided for under the approved RWMP.

Cancelling an exemption

If the circumstances of a granted exemption change, the provider must immediately notify us (PDF, 593.3KB). We may decide to cancel the exemption if the provider is no longer complying with a condition of the exemption, or if the provider has permanently stopped supplying recycled water. In this case we will issue an information notice for the decision.
