Administrative variation – Weeroona Island

On 5 May 2015, the District Council of Mount Remarkable’s water retail licence was amended to reflect that the township of Port Flinders has changed its name to Weeroona Island, as published in the South Australian Government Gazette on 14 November 2013.

Variation – sewerage services at Wirrabara

On 24 June 2016, the District Council of Mount Remarkable applied to the Commission for a variation to its water retail licence. The District Council of Mount Remarkable applied to add to its licence the provision of sewerage services to residential and non-residential customers in the township of Wirrabara.

The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders.

The varied water retail licence was issued to the District Council of Mount Remarkable on 28 September 2016. A copy of the application and varied licence can be accessed below.

Assessment criteria

The Commission has assessed the application against the relevant provisions of the Water Industry Act 2012 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 (as they apply to the Commission's role as an economic regulator of the South Australian water and sewerage service industries) and determined that all relevant criteria had been satisfied. It has therefore approved the application.
