Serviced Land is the land which TasWater will permit a standard connection to its water and sewerage infrastructure. The identification of Serviced Land is important as it determines TasWater’s obligation to connect and supply customers. Serviced Land also underpins policies and arrangements with respect to service extension and expansion, service charges, service introduction, service replacement and developer charges.

The Economic Regulator requires TasWater to publish separate descriptions of Serviced Land for water services and sewerage services and ensure the description is updated and published on a regular and ongoing basis.

TasWater adopted a desktop based approach to the identification of its Serviced Land area, guided by a state-wide set of business rules that address issues such as minimum flow, static pressure and proximity to infrastructure mains.

TasWater has identified Serviced Land based on individual land titles. Each title has been assessed for a single tenement connection. In the event that multiple tenements are required, additional assessments will need to be undertaken.

Serviced Land assessments are performed on each property with a valid title reference as per data supplied by The LIST. Any errors or omissions in this data are beyond TasWater’s control.

Water Quality Portal
Our water quality portal enables you to access water quality results for your system. This system is updated monthly and highlights the current status and any detected exceedances against the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. Please enter your address to see your drinking water results.

Areas coloured blue on the map denote titles that are classified as Full Service in Serviced Land, i.e. the titles meet the following criteria:
1. Can be supplied with treated water; and
2. Are within 30 metres of our water reticulation main; and
3. Can receive the minimum flow and pressure at the connection point (refer to the TasWater Supplement to WSAA Water Supply Code of Australia for more details); and
4. Connection to our reticulation main would not cross land owned by a third party
5. The physical characteristics or location of the land title are not such as to require the application of unusual or unusually costly infrastructure, design, or installation techniques in order for the connection to be made.

Uncoloured areas, i.e. areas where the base map can be clearly seen, denotes titles that do not meet the definition of Serviced Land.
