SQIDEP Myth: Is Maintenance Included During the Test Phase?

Maintenance is recorded. SQIDEP (V1.3 5.2.f) clearly states that “Discussion of all/any maintenance activities performed on the treatment measure including, nature, interval, modifications, repairs, replacements, observations.”

Stormwater Australia deliberately plugged potential gaps in SQIDEP by inserting these clauses.
