Wastewater & Wirrina Water Supply Transfer

SA Water and Council have been working together to secure the future of the sewerage services in the district and the drinking water supply for Wirrina.

Currently owned and operated by Council, Council has reached in-principle agreement for SA Water to assume ownership, operation and maintenance for the wastewater systems in the district and the Wirrina drinking water supply network.

There are significant benefits in this arrangement in terms of risk reduction for Council that have been heightened with the introduction of the Water Industry Act 2012. SA Water will use their expertise to operate both networks safely and efficiently.

SA Water quarterly charges for the removal and treatment of sewerage and used water are based on property values as determined by the Valuer-General, currently 0.37225 cents per $1,000.

As an SA Water customer it is likely that most residents will pay less than their existing sewerage service rates.

SA Water and Council are engaging directly with Wirrina property owners on the proposal as Wirrina property owners will need to make a financial contribution towards upgrades so SA Water can best deliver safe, clean drinking water.

For more details come along to the public meeting being held Tuesday 29 May at 7pm in Wirrina Hotel and Golf Resort.
