About extending a water supply work or water use approval
The department sends extension notices to the nominated contact 60 days prior to the expiry of all approvals. The extension notice includes a cover letter and application form for the extension. Another notice is sent 30 days prior to expiry.
Note: if your approval expires before you apply for an extension, the fees will change.
How to apply
What you need to do
If you wish to lawfully continue using your water supply and/or water use approval, you need to:
- Review, sign and complete the supplied form.
- Note: If there is more than one approval holder, all co-holders must make a joint application.
- Apply to extend the duration of your approval before the expiry date.
- If your approval expires, you will no longer have the right to use the water supply work and/or use for the purposes specified. Continuing to use water without a current licence or approval may be an offence.
The application form to renew your approval will have been emailed to you with the notice of renewal. If your approval expires in less than 60 days and you have not received an email, please enquire through firstname.lastname@example.org.
