What is a Sewer Service Diagram?

A Sewer Service Diagram (SSD) shows the location of private wastewater service pipes on a property. In NSW where Fair Trading and delegated authorities are responsible for conducting plumbing and drainage inspections, plumbers/drainers must book an inspection and submit an updated or new SSD to Fair Trading or the delegated authority for completed drainage work. Please view the link below for full information on SSD’s as well as sample diagrams. https://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/371456/Sewer_service_diagram_requirments.pdf
