On 26 August, the District Council of Tumby Bay applied to the Commission to vary its water retail licence to include the provision of sewerage services to customers in the township of Port Neill.

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

The Commission 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.

The varied water retail licence was issued to the District Council of Tumby Bay on 16 November 2016. A copy of the application and licence can be accessed below.
