Network Infrastructure - Water & Sewer

Details of SA Water’s requirements for the design and installation of water and sewer reticulation infrastructure are provided on the following pages. The requirements apply to both new, and modifications to existing, infrastructure.

The information is relevant for Consultant Engineers and Construction Contractors engaged in the design, construction and maintenance of SA Water reticulation assets.

SA Water’s requirements are based upon the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) Codes. WSAA acknowledges there are instances where Water Authorities may have specific requirements and allows Authorities to deviate from its Code. Where SA Water does vary from the WSAA Code, details of the alternative requirement are provided in SA Water’s Supplement (to the WSAA code).

SA Water's documentation is detailed for water and sewer applications and includes:

  • The relevant WSAA Codes are available from the WSAA website,
  • The SA Water Supplements to the WSAA Code,
  • SA Water Construction Drawings,
  • Engineering Standards (Technical Standards and Guidelines),
  • Authorised Products for use with each system.

    We’re improving your services and undertaking maintenance work in Paradise. Sometimes our crews need to temporarily interrupt the water supply to our customers and/or manage traffic while they are working. Temporary traffic management may remain in place until reinstatement of the impacted road is complete. We always aim to minimise inconvenience by restoring services as safely and quickly as we can.
