The South East Queensland Water (Distribution and Retail Restructuring) Act 2009 (SEQ Water Act) requires the Water Netserv Plan to be reviewed at least every 5 years. The information contained within the plan is for the next 20 years, with rolling updates during each review period.
The plan includes the planning assumptions from each of Urban Utilities shareholder councils (Brisbane, Ipswich, Somerset, Scenic Rim and Lockyer Valley). Each council must endorse the plan, agreeing that the planning assumptions are correct.
The plan must also be consistent with the most current SEQ Regional Plan.
In addition to the 5 yearly major reviews, Urban Utilities updates some parts of the plan regularly. The Charge Schedule is updated annually and the connection are area policy is also regularly updated
