Indigenous community engineering guidelines (ICEG)

These guidelines have been developed for use by engineers and other professionals involved in the investigation and design of essential service assets in Northern Territory remote communities. 

The Indigenous Community Engineering Guidelines for Remote Communities (1.2 mb) cover essential services to 72 remote indigenous communities in the NT with populations ranging from 100 to 2,700 people.

It provides guidance for all of the following types of work:

  • investigation of essential service systems

  • sewerage 
  • electricity.
