- The existing water service pipe from the property to the highway boundary must be lead pipe
- The applicant must lay a new service pipe from the property to the highway boundary
- The new service pipe must be the same size as the existing water service pipe (where existing pipe is 15mm diameter lead pipe we will replace in 20mm plastic pipe).
