Suspensions and cancellations
The regulator can suspend or cancel an approved recycled water management plan (RWMP).
The regulator can also cancel, but cannot suspend, a granted exemption.
Suspending or cancelling an approved RWMP
The regulator may suspend or cancel an approved RWMP if the recycled water provider has not complied with the plan, a condition of the plan, or a compliance notice.
The regulator must issue a show cause notice about the proposed action to the recycled water provider. If the regulator decides to suspend or cancel an approved RWMP, the regulator will issue an information notice advising the recycled water provider of the suspension or cancellation. This will take effect on the day the notice is given.
If an approved RWMP has been cancelled, the recycled water provider must submit a new RWMP for approval before recommencing supply.
If an approved RWMP has been suspended, the recycled water provider may apply for an approval to resume supply of recycled water.
The regulator may also:
- cancel an approved RWMP if the recycled water provider has permanently stopped supply of recycled water
- suspend an approved RWMP if the recycled water scheme stops the production or supply of recycled water other than as provided for under the approved RWMP.
Cancelling a granted exemption
If the circumstances of a granted exemption change, the recycled water provider must immediately notify the regulator. The regulator may decide to cancel the exemption if the recycled water provider is no longer complying with a condition of the exemption or if the provider has permanently stopped supply of recycled water.
