Metered hydrant application

Metered hydrant application

This is an application and agreement for the hire and use of a portable drinking water metered hydrant. This application is valid for three months from the date we receive it.

The invoice we issue following a successful application is valid for 23 calendar days. If payment is not received within this timeframe, the invoice will expire and a new invoice will be required.

Please note: Once this application is submitted and approved, an agreement between the applicant (and any person on whose behalf the application is made) and SA Water is established subject to terms and conditions for a maximum period of three years. This agreement authorises you to take water by means of a hydrant subject to the conditions and charges stated in this agreement. Any breach of the Water Industry Act 2012, regulations or directions from SA Water may result in immediate termination of this agreement by SA Water at its sole discretion, seizure of the hydrant and issue of a penalty. The supply of water will be subject to a separate contract with SA Water.

I apply to take water from the water infrastructure by means of a hydrant supplied by SA Water and accept the terms and conditions.
