Plumbing and Drainage
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is the regulator of plumbing and drainage in the CGRC LGA by way of delegation provided by NSW Fair Trading. This means that together with NSW Fair Trading we work with the plumbing industry to ensure that all plumbing and drainage is carried out in accordance with the relevant standards.
All plumbing and drainage work carried out must comply with the current version of the Plumbing Code of Australia and Australia Standard AS/NZS 3500 and all work must be undertaken by a NSW licensed plumber.
Generally Council accepts the responsibility, upon notification of fault, for maintenance, repair or renewal of the water service pipework from our water main to the meter and from our sewer main to the connection point within your property. The property owner is responsible for all maintenance within the property from the water meter and sewer connection point.
Certificate of Compliance (CoC)
The person responsible for carrying out plumbing and drainage work is required to submit, to both Council and the person for whom the work was carried out, a Certificate of Compliance in an approved form that certifies the plumbing and drainage work undertaken is code compliant.
Sewer Service Diagram (SSD)
Under the provisions of the Plumbing and Drainage Act, upon completion of any plumbing and drainage work that consists of or includes sanitary drainage work, the licenced contractor who is responsible for the work must supply a Sewer Service Diagram in an approved A4 or A3 format to both the Council and the owner of the land or owners agent.
