Transition to SA Water sewer

In 2020, the State Government and opposition, announced their commitment to transfer properties on CWMS to SA Water sewer.

On 11 May 2021 Council received the Sustainable Sewers Program Transition Plan from SA Water.

The plan proposes a staged conversion and the subsequent transfer of CWMS customers to SA Water sewer.

Council will now consider the finer details of the plan and the associated impacts on CWMS customers, the broader Council ratepayer base and the Council. This process involves preparing a prudential report in line with Section 48 of the Local Government Act 1999 and may take up to six months to complete.
