Stormwater

Stormwater

Stormwater drains are a local council responsibility.

SA Water is not responsible for stormwater drains and we are not involved in their installation, upgrade or maintenance.

If you see stormwater drains overflowing, please contact your local council.

What is the difference between recycled water and stormwater?

Recycled water is wastewater that has been treated at our wastewater treatment plants so it can be reused. Recycled water can be used for non-drinking purposes such as irrigating parklands, flushing toilets and watering gardens. It cannot be used for drinking.

Stormwater is water which collects on areas such as footpaths, driveways and roads after heavy rainfall. Stormwater flows into gutters before entering council drainage systems.
