Food and Beverage - 90 Day Project Outcomes

Food and Beverage - 90 Day Project Outcomes

The growth of South Australia's food and beverage industry is an economic priority. The state's gross food and wine revenue reached a record $17.1 billion in 2013-14. In 2015, key government agencies joined industry representatives to discuss future opportunities. We developed recommendations to improve trade waste outcomes for the industry.

The project’s aim was to ensure our trade waste services:

  • Are cost competitive when compared to other states.
  • Result in economically efficient outcomes for all parties.
  • Reflect best practice management, from the source of waste generation through to end treatment.
  • Are clearly communicated to customers.
  • Investigate possible introduction of assistance packages as the industry adapts to trade waste requirements.

  • 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.
