  • Water Quality
  • Some Adelaide Hills customers may notice changes in the taste and/or smell of their tap water, as we work hard to reduce the impact of an algal bloom in the Summit Reservoir.
    The algal bloom is causing a naturally occurring compound called geosmin, which can affect water taste and odour, but is harmless to health. The water remains safe to drink.
    We expect customers in the following areas may notice this change: Mount Barker, Balhannah, Oakbank, Verdun, Hahndorf, Heathfield, Stirling, Crafers, Lenswood, Lobethal, Woodside, Brukunga, Mount Torrens, Birdwood, Gumeracha, Kersbrook, Cudlee Creek, Wistow, Nairne, Littlehampton, Strathalbyn, Clayton, Milang, Langhorne Creek and Bridgewater.
    We have made changes to our treatment processes at the Summit Water Treatment Plant to reduce the level of geosmin in the water.    
    Our testing shows no algae has been detected in the network and it has been completely removed as part of our normal treatment process.
    If our customers have any questions or concerns, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
