    19th September 2019 - Gravity Sewerage Code 

    QUU and Unitywater have decided to withdraw the following drawings from the SEQ Code’s suite of drawings.

    • SEQ-SEW-1301-6 'G' TYPE - PE NUSEWERS TYPICAL MAINTENANCE HOLE STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT DETAILS SHEET 1 OF 2
    • SEQ-SEW-1301-7 'G' TYPE - PE NUSEWERS TYPICAL MAINTENANCE HOLE STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT DETAILS SHEET 2 OF 2
    • SEQ-SEW-1301-12 'F' TYPE - PE NUSEWERS TYPICAL MAINTENANCE HOLE STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT DETAILS SHEET 1 OF 2
    • SEQ-SEW-1301-13 'F' TYPE - PE NUSEWERS TYPICAL MAINTENANCE HOLE STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT DETAILS SHEET 2 OF 2

    The original intent behind these drawings was to show reinforcement requirements for those manholes where a RPEQ determines extra structural integrity is required. However, it has become apparent that the drawings are being interpreted by some people as minimum requirements, and that reinforcement is required in all instances. That was never the intent.

    It is a requirement for RPEQs to take responsibility for their designs. That includes considering the need for reinforcement or not.

    Please note, the four drawings will continue to be seen in the Sewerage Code eBook, and on the SEQ Code website, for a short period until we affect the change.
