Don’t let precious water go down the drain. 

We're responsible for the pipes from your water meter to the street. If you’ve spotted a leak on our side (i.e. not on private property), let us know straight away using the form below and we’ll get it sorted.

Major burst or emergency?

What am I responsible for?

Before you report a leak it's important to identify where the leak is coming from. South East Water is responsible for maintaining and repairing any issues with the body of the water meter, stop tap and pipes from the street to your meter.

The property owner is responsible for maintaining and repairing pipes from the water meter to the customer's house (including any issues with your garden tap).

Is the leak on the home side of the meter?

If you’re the property owner, you’ll need to contact a licensed plumber to fix it for you. South East Water Priority Plumbing is on hand to assist you 24/7.

We're always upgrading

It’s a big job to look after thousands of kilometres of Victorian pipelines. That’s why every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the pipes beneath your feet.
