Our Networks

At SA Water, we manage a large drinking water network over a large geographical area. Central to the networks are the major pipelines that deliver water from the River Murray to many parts of South Australia. There are also several minor pipelines, which although shorter in length, are still a vital part of our network.

In metropolitan Adelaide, we deliver water to customers through an interconnected system of pipes and pump stations. This network is so flexible, that with a few adjustments, we can move large volumes of water from north to south or east to west of the city.

In regional parts of the state, each area's water main network has its own unique operational needs, based on where water is sourced from, the kind of treatment the water needs to be safe and clean, and the type of customers the water is supplied to and across how long of a distance.

We manage all parts of this complex network to ensure a continued reliable supply of water for our customers. When a part of the pipeline network fails, our aim is to minimise any disruption to customers and the wider community and complete any repairs as quickly and safely as possible.
