Application for Water Supply

Pursuant to Section 14 of Waterworks Ordinance (Cap. 102) (WWO), no person shall, unless with the permission in writing of the Water Authority, construct, install, alter, or remove a fire service or inside service, except for alterations to a fire service or inside service which are, in the opinion of the Water Authority, of a minor nature. Generally, works of a minor nature are works which can be completed without the involvement of specialised trade skill that requires specific knowledge and ability acquired through designated training for carrying out the works, and those which do not change the general arrangement of the plumbing installation already approved by the Water Authority, or affect the flow conditions of the plumbing system thus causing possible supply problems. If the works involve alteration of the existing plumbing alignment, the plumbing diagram should be submitted to the Water Supplies Department for approval.
