Augmentation

Augmentation

Augmentation is when mains are upgraded to service whole areas of land development. It does not apply to a single development.

An augmentation area is the area where our network capacity has been extended. Generally, this is done to account for the future needs of an area, should it be developed in future.

The majority of augmentation areas are in country townships. Some are in fringe metropolitan suburbs. Augmentation charges only apply within these areas.

For more information you can read our Augmentation Policy.

Paying augmentation charges

Augmentation charges are additional costs. They are payable on top of costs normally associated with land development. You can see those charges below.

How is the augmentation charge calculated?

There are a number of factors that impact on the augmentation charge. These include:

  • the cost of completing the work
  • the size of the area
  • the number of potential allotments that can be served.

Augmentation may include:

  • duplication of a water main
  • creation of additional water storage
  • construction of a sewage pumping station
  • construction of larger diameter sewers.

These services can be staged or delayed. They will then be done once the existing infrastructure is unable to serve the level of development that has taken place.

Augmentation areas and fees

For all augmentation areas and charges, please refer to the 2018/19 Augmentation Fee Document.
