Locating pipes and drains on your property

When carrying out works on your property, it is important to make sure you know where the sewer and water pipes, and stormwater drains are located on your property.

Before you start any works, you must:

  1. Find out where any pipes and drains are located by calling 1100 or visiting Dial Before You Dig.
  2. Check your Land Title to see if there are any easements on your property. If your proposed works are in close proximity to an easement, you may need approval before you can commence works. For more information, visit Building over easements.
  3. Contact our Building Unit on (03) 5422 0333 or visit Do I need a permit, approval or consent to check if you need to apply for a permit or gain approval before you begin any works.
