Liquid Hauled Waste

Liquid Hauled Waste

If your property is not connected to the sewerage system, you may have your waste removed by truck. Many of our wastewater treatment plants accept deliveries of this type of waste.

Liquid hauled waste is:

  • septic tank sludge
  • septic tank effluent
  • portable toilet contents
  • non-domestic sewage.

One-off trade waste disposals also come under this category.

We only accept liquid hauled waste if:

  • the type and quantity of contaminants can be safely and effectively treated at our receiving plants
  • the reuse potential of treatment end-products is not compromised
  • our regulatory compliance with our environmental license conditions is not compromised
  • a licensed hauler has a permit from us for the purpose of making the delivery
  • we have agreed to accept batches of non-domestic hauled waste from a business.

What to do with other liquid wastes

If your liquid waste doesn't meet our criteria, you can consign it to a licensed liquid waste contractor. These contractors will treat or dispose of your waste.

Our wastewater treatment plants can't accept ad hoc discharges of portable toilet contents from sources like mobile homes. There are a number of designated dump points in regional towns and some caravan parks for this waste.

  • 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.
