The Commission has received an application from Alano Utilities Pty Ltd for a variation to its water retail licence for the provision of non-drinking water to residential and commercial customers located at Wallaroo, Mount Barker and Two Wells.
Current status is Final
The Commission has received an application for a variation from Alano Utilities Pty Ltd for a variation to its water retail licence in accordance with the Water Industry Act 2012 Act (Water Act). The applicant is seeking to provide non-drinking water to residential and commercial customers located at:
- North Beach, Wallaroo
- Aston Hills, Adore Estate, Parkfield Glades developments at Mount Barker, and
- Eden development, Two Wells.
In assessing a variation to a water licence, the Commission considers the application against the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Water Act. It will also have regard to its primary objective under the Essential Services Commission Act 2002, being the protection of the long-term interests of South Australian consumers with respect to the price, quality and reliability of essential services, and other factors as they apply to the Commission's role as an economic regulator of the South Australian electricity industry.
In making its assessment, the Commission consults with other regulators, including the Technical Regulator, SA Health, the Environmental Protection Authority and the Department for Environment and Water, which have regulatory roles in the water and sewerage service industry.
The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 21 October 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
Please refer to the variation history in the licence for further information on variations approved by the Commission, pursuant to the criteria in the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002.
