Licensing

Running water

 

From 1 January 2013, any person or entity providing a water or sewerage “retail service” in South Australia will be required to be licensed by the Commission.

The Water Industry Act 2012 defines a “retail service” as:

  • sale and supply of water to a person for use where the water is to be conveyed by a reticulated system; or
  • the sale and supply of sewerage services (the collection, storage, treatment or conveyance of sewage through a reticulated system) for the removal of sewage, even if the service is not actually used.

A retail service includes, but is not limited to, the following activities:

  • Drinking water services;
  • Sewerage services;
  • Recycled water/Stormwater services;
  • Other non-drinking water services; and
  • Other miscellaneous water and sewerage services.

If you currently provide or intend to provide any of these services, you should contact us to discuss possible licensing requirements under Part 4 of the Water Industry Act. Refer to the Licence Applications page for further information.

For information on the fees applicable to your licence refer to Licence Fees.
