Final

On 2 September 2017, Glen Meadow Community Water Association Incorporated (Glen Meadow) applied to the Commission for an exemption from the requirement to hold a water retail licence under the Water Industry Act 2012 (the Act). Glen Meadow provides non-drinking water to 79 residential customers.

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

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 it is appropriate to issue an exemption. 

The Commission, with the approval of the Minister for Water and the River Murray, granted Glen Meadow an exemption from the requirement to hold a water retail licence on 16 February 2018.
