  • Water Quality
  • 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.
