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.

Non-drinking water supplies

  • Water Quality
  • SA Water customers in Goolwa and surrounding areas, including Goolwa Beach, Goolwa South, Goolwa North and Hindmarsh Island may currently be experiencing discoloured or milky water coming out of their taps.

    This water remains safe to drink.

    During recent planned maintenance in the area, some existing sediment in the local water supply network has been stirred up, resulting in the discoloured water.

    We are working hard to resolve the issue, and we are flushing out the discoloured water. Given the size of the water network in the area, this may take some time. At this stage, we are hoping water supply will return to normal by Friday afternoon.

    We will continue to monitor the situation, and provide updates on our website and Facebook page.

    For further information or any questions, please contact us on 1300 SA WATER.
