The As-Constructed Design Certification (ACDC) portal

The As-Constructed Design Certification (ACDC) portal allows developers, consultants and surveyors to test their as-constructed drawings (for pipelines only) through the Melbourne Water ACDC portal prior to submitting via the usual channels. 

The portal enables validation against published as-built standards by providing an electronic check of drawings up-front to identify any issues prior to submission. 

While we are not yet accepting submissions via the ACDC portal, the portal will serve as a validation tool for pipelines to help reduce the need to amend drawings post submission.

ACDC Portal Training 

If you are not familiar with the ACDC portal and would like help using the portal to test your drawings, Melbourne Water will provide training in 2018. 

This training will be available for developers, consultants and surveyors and will form the foundation for using the portal for both pipeline drawing validations and subsequent electronic submissions.

If you would like to register your interest for this training, please send an email to:
