Entering the public stormwater network
If you are building or doing any maintenance work, you may need access into the stormwater network.
You are also responsible for getting any necessary permission from the landowner.
If the job requires access to the stormwater network for a non-physical work activity, fill in and submit the following form.
Types of non-physical works
- Jetting and other cleaning.
- Visual inspection requiring physical entry into the network.
- Any other physical access to the network not involving physical works.
For any activity involving physical works to the stormwater network such as pipe connections or maintenance, you need an engineering approval.
For more information, see Engineering applications.
Road corridor access
If the job involves any work in the road corridor, make a Corridor Access Request through Auckland Transport.
