When you think about saving water, it's easy to think just about your garden. But there are other opportunities. Consider your paved areas, cars, pool or spa. In this section you'll learn how to use and save water all around your home.
Another way to make a valuable contribution to reducing water use is through rainwater collection. It can also help reduce your costs, and improve South Australia's sustainability. For advice on the collection of rainwater for drinking purposes, check out SA Health's handy facts.
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.
