Hunter Water is continually looking at practical ways to update its design practices and standards. In line with other major Australian water authorities, we have developed integrated Hunter Water editions of the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) WSA 02 Gravity Sewerage Code of Australia and the WSA 03 Water Supply Code of Australia. The integrated editions of the design codes replaced sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Hunter Water Design Manual.
The Hunter Water edition of the Codes includes Hunter Water's requirements for specific detail which the Code anticipates individual water agencies will address, and additions, deletions and variations to the Code where the Code's requirements are not compatible with Hunter Water's current requirements (due to local practice, climatic, geographic and topographic conditions and statutory requirements, etc.) or where the Code is otherwise silent. The Hunter Water Codes specifies mandatory requirements for the design and construction of water supply systems and gravity sewerage that are to become the responsibility of Hunter Water.
Rather than indicating Hunter Water's variations in the form of a supplementary document, the Hunter Water Codes have been edited such that it directly incorporates the changes without the need to reference a second document. These integrated editions read like the original WSAA Codes but have markers and labels (similar to track changes) indicating that the WSAA standard has been modified or added to in some way.
To assist in the implementation of Version 2.0 the Hunter Water Codes, Comparison Documents have been prepared to assist in identifying differences between version 1.0 and version 2.0 of Hunter Water's integrated WSAA codes.

All servicing strategy, concept and detail design projects for water supply and/or gravity sewerage network infrastructure must be completed in accordance with the Hunter Water Editions of the WSAA Water Supply and Gravity Sewerage Codes. Further information on developer design submission requirements is available here.
The Hunter Water Edition of WSAA Water Supply and Gravity Sewerage Codes are available for purchase through the WSAA bookshop. For all enquiries regarding purchase of the codes, please contact WSAA directly.
