How to identify your work as inactive
The NSW metering rules apply to all works and compliance will be assessed against your work approval - not what is in the ground and
whether you use it or not. If you do not actively use these works or do not have any infrastructure installed, you are not required to
have a meter.
Before a work will be tagged as inactive, YOU MUST demonstrate the work is not physically capable of taking water and REGISTER your work as inactive. This is done through WaterNSW.
Registering your work inactive will ensure you avoid being non-compliant to these rules by the relevant due date; either 1 December 2020 for larger than 500mm sites or 1 December 2021 for all other sites. This applies to both surface and groundwater works. identify
