Non-residential water prices

Non-residential water prices

Our non-residential customers include anyone who is not a residential or commercial customer and includes businesses, sporting clubs, not for profit and charity organisations, and country lands.

Water charges are made up of two parts:

  1. A fixed charge for water supply.
  2. A variable charge for water use – the more you use, the more you pay.

Reduced prices for water and sewerage services are lowering the cost of business in South Australia.

Water supply charge

The 2020-21 annual charge for having water supplied to your business is $271.40, billed at $67.85 per quarter.

Water use price

All non-residential customers will benefit from a reduction of around 18 per cent for water use prices. The 2020-21 water use price is now $2.775/kL (or $0.002775 per litre).

Sewerage charge

Minimum sewerage charges have decreased by 10 per cent and the property rates for property-based sewerage charges for business customers have reduced by more than 10 per cent. Property rates are set using 2020-21 property values determined by the Valuer General’s Office.
