Water Quality

SA Water operate drinking water supplies across metropolitan, regional and remote Aboriginal communities within South Australia. They are extensively tested for health, aesthetic and operational related parameters from catchment to tap, with more than 350,000 analytical results produced annually. 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 consistently meets national water quality targets. Although SA Water aims for 100% compliance, the ADWG recognises that occasional exceedances may occur. Any exceedance requires immediate investigation and corrective action as agreed with SA Health. The following water quality performance results sheet compares the quality of your tap water over the last 12 months to the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (2011) where applicable.
