Authorised Contractors (Land Development)

SA Water maintains a list (not a pre-qualified Panel) of firms and individuals who have represented to SA Water Corporation that they have the management capability, qualifications, expertise, and experience as well as technical capability to carry out construction, installation, testing and commissioning works for water, waste water and re-cycled water infrastructure on Developer funded projects typically associated with a formal SA Water Land Development Agreement. Inclusion on this list is not an authorisation for work on, or connection into, any SA Water infrastructure that is in service or supply.

SA Water Corporation makes no guarantees or warranties as to the performance, commercial practices or financial status of these firms or individuals. SA Water Corporation does not endorse any of the workmanship, or services offered by the firms or individuals listed.

It is strongly recommended that the Person Conducting the Business or Undertaking (PCBU) (Usually the Developer) undertake normal due diligence procedures when selecting a contractor from this list, to ensure that they (The PCBU) can ensure compliance with any and all applicable laws, regulations, best practice and the associated Land Development Agreement requirements including, but not limited to; work Health & safety, technical standards, operational conditions and, or other applicable requirements e.g. ethical conduct.

All of our contractors must meet certain criteria, including accreditation through SA Water's Contractor Management System (CMS).

Who is on the SA Water Contractor (Land Development) List?

Only those contractors on our Authorised Contractors List (September 2017) have been assessed for inclusion on the list for works on new SA Water Infrastructure within Land Developments.

I have AS/NZS ISO 9000 certification. Is that enough?

If you have full Quality Assurance certification, you also must also do one of two things. You can either:

  1. be audited to prove you meet the requirements of our WHS Checklist [PDF, 46 kB], or
  2. be certified to AS/NZS 14000 (Environmental) or AS/NZS 4804 (OH&S).

How do I get onto the SA Water Authorised Contractor (Land Development) List?

We are not currently seeking additional Contractors for inclusion on the list. (Effective September 2017)

Design drawing standards required by SA Water

SA Water accredits consulting firms who submit design drawings for proposed networks. Our system rates firms on a two-tier system based on the accuracy and quality of design drawings.

Your rating is re-assessed every time you submit new design drawings.

Full information about our Consultant Accreditation System and our Consultant Accreditation Criteria can be downloaded.

Network standards and engineering guidelines

Complete technical information and standardised construction documents can be found in our Network Standards or Engineering Guidelines.

Contractor Management System

To meet Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation, SA Water has an online Contractor Management System (CMS) and compliance for all SA Water contractors is mandatory.

The online CMS ensures:
* only qualified and compliant contractors work on SA Water sites
* our contractors are provided with important information about SA Water's WHS responsibilities and requirements, and our organisational values.

Contractors must demonstrate they have systems that are compliant with WHS legislation and can work safely alongside us helping to reduce the overall risk of workplace injury. To do this, and achieve our value of putting safety above all else the contracting company must answer a series of set questions in order to become a pre-accredited SA Water Contractor.

The CMS also provides an online corporate induction to ensure contractors and subcontractors are aware of SA Water's WHS requirements before arriving at an SA Water work site.

This system helps us create a more efficient workplace and a safer working environment for everyone.

All contractors and subcontractors must show their SA Water Contractor Card before they commence work at a site where SA Water has influence and control. The Contractor Card is provided once contractor and subcontractor staff have successfully completed the corporate induction.

I am currently engaged by SA Water as a contractor. What do I need to do?

SA Water will send you an email requesting you to register in the CMS by accessing this link. You don't need to do anything until we contact you.

Want to know more?

If you have any questions please refer to the CMS User Guide or contact the CMS Officers by emailing, CMSSupport@sawater.com.au or calling (08) 7424 1875 or (08) 7424 1912.

  • Major faults

  • Underway

  • Multiple streets
  • Goolwa
  • 19/10/2017
  • 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.
