Wastewater treatment capacity register
A wastewater treatment capacity register gives you an indication of whether there's enough wastewater treatment capacity in an area to cater for a proposed development with or without capital upgrades to our infrastructure.
The county registers on this page indicate each area's available capacity for wastewater treatment.
The capacity available at treatment plants changes regularly based upon the loads received from existing customers. Our registers are only an indication of available capacity.
Contact us through the pre-connection enquiry process to allow us to determine if a waste water connection will be feasible with or without capital upgrades to our infrastructure.
These registers do not take network capacity into account. In cases where a new development is planned, we may need to make upgrades to the waste water network to support the collection of the new load and to prevent flooding from occurring to our existing infrastructure.
We assess whether the waste water network can support a new development during the connections process.
In all instances if you are considering progressing a development you should contact our Connections team who will provide a greater level of detail in relation to the availability of waste water treatment capacity. Learn more about the pre connection enquiry and waste water connections process in the Connections section of this site.
Information on planned projects can be viewed at the Projects section of this website.
If a capacity register states there is available capacity, that is not confirmation that a connection will be approved. Contact us through the pre-connection enquiry processto allow us to determine if a waste water connection will be feasible with or without capital upgrades to our infrastructure..
The viability of a new connection is not agreed until the Connection Agreement contract has been executed.
The 2022 census results will be considered as part of the 2024 issue of the capacity registers as the information isn’t readily available for this year’s publication.
