Each year, we pay dividends to the State Government. We also receive payments known as Community Service Obligations (CSOs).
We must pay dividends under the Public Finance and Audit Act 1993. Dividends are currently worked out on 95% of our after-tax profit. This is set by the government's Financial Ownership Framework for Public Non-Financial Corporations.
We are paid Community Service Obligations (CSOs) for the services we have to provide, but which are not for profit. The majority of the payment is for providing water services in country areas at metropolitan water prices. We don't charge the full cost of providing those services.

Customers in the southern suburbs through to the Adelaide CBD may notice a temporary change to the colour of their water. The water remains safe to drink.
Suburbs affected may include:
Clapham, Pasadena, Cumberland Park, Westbourne Park, Kingswood, Goodwood, Keswick, Unley, Panorama, Belair and Adelaide CBD.
We have begun flushing parts of the surrounding network as a result of new pipe work being installed to support the South Road Darlington Upgrade works. We will continue to test the water quality and are in contact with SA Health. All test results are compliant with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. At this stage we anticipate the water will return to normal by late this evening.
If you have concerns, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
