The identification of Serviced Land is important as it determines TasWater’s obligation to connect and supply customers.
Serviced Land is the land that TasWater will allow a standard connection to its water and sewerage infrastructure. Serviced Land also underpins policies and arrangements for 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 make sure the description is updated and published on a regular and ongoing basis.
TasWater adopted a desktop-based approach to identify its Serviced Land area, guided by a set of statewide business rules to address issues such as minimum flow, static pressure and proximity to infrastructure mains.
TasWater has identified Serviced Land based on individual property titles. Each property title has been assessed for a single tenement connection. Where multiple tenements are required, additional assessments will need to be carried out.
Serviced Land assessments are done for properties with a valid title reference. TasWater uses official property title reference data from The LIST (Land Information System Tasmania), which is managed by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. Any errors or omissions in property title reference data is beyond TasWater’s control.

LISTmap is an online map viewer managed by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. Click on the following links to use LISTmap to display the Serviced Land maps for water and sewerage services.
Areas coloured blue on the map show property titles that are classified as Full Service in Serviced Land, i.e. the property titles meet the following criteria:
- Can be supplied with treated water
- Are within 30 metres of our water reticulation main
- 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)
- Connection to our reticulation main would not cross land owned by a third party
- The physical characteristics or location of the property title do not 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, show property titles that do not meet the definition of Serviced Land.
