Where your tap water data comes from

Your drinking water is carefully monitored and tested before it reaches your tap.

All South Australia’s drinking water systems are extensively tested, with more than 372,000 analytical tests carried out annually. Using SA Health approved monitoring programs, we regularly monitor and test your drinking water with our trained testers producing more than 1000 water test results every day across the state.

Samples are collected at various locations in the water supply journey by skilled field workers. Laboratory analyses are carried out by the state-of-the-art Australian Water Quality Centre recognised as a world leading laboratory, based in Adelaide, South Australia. These are done in accordance with ISO 9001 Quality Systems and the requirements of the National Association of Testing Authorities.

The following drinking water quality report compares the quality of your tap water over the last 12 months to the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (2011), where applicable.
