Where does this data come from?

We collect and analyse more than 250,000 water samples each year. We monitor water at a variety of locations, from catchment to tap. We do this across metropolitan and country South Australia.

The monitoring program is very large. It enables us to assure the quality of our product. The program includes both field and laboratory tests. Trained field staff collect samples, so we know they are taken correctly and are of high quality.

Our laboratory analyses are carried out by the Australian Water Quality Centre (AWQC). The AWQC's tests are run in line with ISO 9001 Quality Systems and the requirements of the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).

  • 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.
