The Department of Energy and Water Supply and the Department of Natural Resources and Mines have been combined to create the new Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

We will continue to update this website while we work on our new website.

Permanently stopping supply

If a recycled water scheme is going to shut down and permanently stop supplying recycled water, the scheme manager, recycled water provider and other declared entities must notify us.

A notice of intent to permanently stop supply form (PDF, 594.2KB) must be completed by the recycled water provider or scheme manager and given to us, unless there is a reasonable excuse:

  • for critical recycled water schemes: at least 60 days before the supply of recycled water is proposed to stop
  • for other schemes: at least 30 days before the supply of recycled water is proposed to stop.

We may authorise alternative arrangements for a critical recycled water scheme to ensure the continued operation of the scheme and use additional dispute resolution powers if required.

We may request additional information about the stoppage or require any information to be verified by statutory declaration.

If supply continues after the date stated in the notice the intention to cease supply, the notice ceases to have effect.

Once supply under the scheme actually stops, the recycled water provider or scheme manager must give us notice of the stoppage form (PDF, 567.6KB) within 5 days after supply stops.
