The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.
Suspending and cancelling recycled water management plans
The Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy can suspend or cancel an approved recycled water management plan (RWMP) if you, as a recycled water provider, have not complied with the plan, a condition of the plan, or a compliance notice.
The department will issue a show cause notice about the proposed action. If we decide to suspend or cancel the approved RWMP, we will issue an information notice for the decision (the notice) advising the recycled water provider of the suspension or cancellation of the RWMP. This action will take effect on the day the notice is given.
- If your approved RWMP has been suspended, you may apply for an approval to resume supply of recycled water.
- If your approved RWMP has been cancelled, you must submit a new RWMP for approval before recommencing supply.
If you wish to temporarily cease the production or supply of recycled water and temporarily suspend your approved RWMP, the department may suspend a RWMP when a Notice of temporary or unscheduled stoppage (PDF, 1.0MB) is received.
The department may cancel a RWMP if the recycled water provider has permanently stopped supplying recycled water under the scheme.
You should use the:
- Application to resume supply (PDF, 589KB) to apply for approval to resume supply of recycled water
- Internal review of decision application (PDF, 634KB) to request review and appeal.
