Restricted wastewater technical committee

Restricted wastewater technical committee

Formed in 2014, the restricted wastewater technical committee focuses on:

  • Helping communicate restricted wastewater policy matters, particularly draft and newly proposed trade waste changes, to industry members responsible for designing trade waste customer pre-treatment and drainage solutions.
  • Providing feedback on restricted wastewater policy determinations for our consideration.
  • Providing feedback on quality of service relating to restricted wastewater service offerings.
  • Contributing to improvement initiatives, such as technical investigations to inform policy reviews.
  • Providing feedback on quality of service related to non-restricted wastewater service offerings, such as water and sewerage connections, quotes, and recycled water.

The committee includes representatives from our trade waste and networks team, the Office of the Technical Regulator, Aurecon, Hydraulic Association SA District, KBR, Lucid Consulting Australia, Master Plumbers Association and freelance consultants.

The committee’s Terms of Reference sets out its framework and operation.

Industry members can express their interest in joining the committee by completing the application form and sending it to tradewaste@sawater.com.au. You can call our Trade Waste and Networks team during the business hours on 08 7424 1336 if you have any questions.

Applications will be assessed and considered with applicants advised directly of the outcome.
