The Commission has received an application from the South Australian Water Corporation (SA Water) for a variation to its water industry retail licence to allow for the provision of retail services to customers connected to a reticulated water scheme at Leigh Creek and a reticulated water scheme at Angle Vale.
Current status is Final
On 31 October 2017, SA Water applied to the Commission to vary its water retail licence.
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). This included section 18(2) of the Act which provides SA Water with the entitlement to hold a licence appropriate to the services, operations or activities provided, carried on or undertaken by it from time to time.
The Commission determined that it was appropriate to vary SA Water’s licence to authorise the provision of retail services, operations or activities provided, carried on or undertaken by the licensee from time to time.
The varied water retail licence was issued to SA Water on 14 December 2017. A copy of the application and licence can be accessed below.
