At SA Water, we take our responsibility to protect the environment seriously. We acknowledge what we do now can impact on the world that will be inherited by future generations.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impacts of our business for the benefit of the community. We are continuously striving to improve our water and wastewater operations and our performance in protecting water supplies, oceans, rivers and other resources.
SA Water has comprehensive strategic, management and operational plans to monitor, develop and review our environmental performance.
Key objectives are to minimise the environmental impact of the following operational activities:
It is critically important that the integrity of land around our reservoirs is protected to retain water quality, so much work is done to remove plants such as furze and broom. These programs are undertaken on a systematic basis with repeated annual control and follow up until the species is eliminated.
SA Water’s revegetation projects are an important and ongoing part of our environment improvement programs.
