Building Over or Near Our Assets


Excavating? Get all of the facts on underground assets before potentially damaging pipe or networks. 

Wingecarribee Shire Council can provide plans of its water, stormwater and sewer assets to persons who intend to undertake excavation works in the Shire. 

Plans can be requested through Dial Before You Dig (DBYD).

Dial Before You Dig

Minimise the risk of damaging underground pipes or cable networks by contacting 1100 Dial Before You Dig. 

Enquiries can be submitted online or via phone 1100 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm).



A confirmation advice will be sent to you from Dial Before You Dig listing all of the utilities with underground assets near your proposed excavation. If Council is among the listed asset owners, you do not need to contact us. You will receive plans of our assets by email within 2 business days of lodging your enquiry. If you don't have email facilities, the plans will be posted to you within 2 weeks.

Please ensure you define your dig site accurately when lodging the enquiry. The plans you receive will be based on the location indication on the map displayed in your confirmation advice - not the address details or other information provided. 

The Plans

The plans will be issued in colour and if emailed, will be in PDF format. They will be formatted to A3 size with potentially more than one plan depending on the size of the site specified in your enquiry. 

Any plans will be supported with our Excavating? Know Your Obligations and Asset Information documents. 

Any damage to Council’s water and sewer network MUST be reported immediately to Customer Service on 02 4868 0888 (available 24 hours).
