Keeping up to date with the latest approved products for the design and construction of water, recycled water and sewer networks is now even easier, with the launch of a new web portal for the development industry, water retailers, civil product  and material industries.

In a collaborative approach with Melbourne’s metropolitan retailers City West Water and Yarra Valley Water, South East Water has developed a product web portal that lists all approved products in one handy location.

The web portal:
 - allows users to easily find products through an intuitive search tool
 - makes it easier to view the approval conditions and limitations of use for each product, as approved by each water company.
 - provides technical information from the product manufacturer and authorised suppliers
