Authorised Water Supply Installer Register
The Authorised Water Supply Installer Register [PDF, 100 KB] has been established to make sure that the individual controlling the work at a work site is aware of the hygiene, work standards, and Council standards and procedures to be followed.
Each water supply reticulation work site is required to have an authorised installer working permanently on site who controls the work.
