Land development by land developer agreement

Land development by land developer agreement

A Land Developer Agreement is a contract between SA Water and a customer to construct an extension of main by an accredited civil contractor. You need a Land Developer Agreement when you create a new public road as part of a development. If you just need to extend mains, then a Land Developer Agreement is optional.

You must engage a consulting engineer and a civil contractor when you sign an agreement. Both must be SA Water-accredited.

We work out water and sewer services needed to new housing allotments created via land developer agreements. As the person creating those allotments, you will pay the connection costs.

How to apply

Your surveyor must lodge your proposed plan of division with the Development Assessment Commission (DAC). The DAC will process your application and forward it to SA Water for comment.

After we have worked out what we need, we will advise Planning SA and your surveyor of the details.

What do I need to provide?

 To start the process, you need to give us:

  1. The name (developer or company) in which the Land Developer Agreement documentation will be issued
  2. The registered address of the company OR the residential address of the individuals
  3. Staging details (if applicable)
  4. The consulting engineer's name and address.

  • 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.
