Customer Charter

The Customer Charter is a summary of our responsibilities to our customers.

The Charter applies to everyone with a water supply or sewerage connection. It is important that you know the terms and conditions for using our services that are covered in the Customer Charter. 

We have to meet minimum service standards

SA Water is regulated by the Essential Services Commission of South Australia (ESCOSA). This regulation requires us to meet a certain level of customer service. More about our regulation is here.

Our Customer Advisory Groups help guide our decisions

There are two groups that help make sure our decisions meet your needs. Our Customer Advisory Groups give us important feedback, and help to inform our direction. They meet four times a year.

The two Customer Advisory Groups represent our business and residential customers. Group members are drawn from urban and rural stakeholders. Membership lasts for two years.

Your feedback is important

SA Water takes all customer feedback seriously. All comments that our Customer Service Centre receives are passed on to the business area that can best help. A good example is this website. It was redeveloped in 2014 in response to requests and comments from our customers. Click here to send us your feedback.

    We’re improving your services and undertaking maintenance work in Paradise. Sometimes our crews need to temporarily interrupt the water supply to our customers and/or manage traffic while they are working. Temporary traffic management may remain in place until reinstatement of the impacted road is complete. We always aim to minimise inconvenience by restoring services as safely and quickly as we can.
