WATER SERVICES ACT 2012
Exemption for Total Eden Pty Ltd for the provision of a water service to the Rosehill Waters Estate, South Guildford
In accordance with section 7 of the Water Services Act 2012, Hon Dave Kelly MLA, Minister for Water, has granted an exemption from the application of section 5(1) of the Act to Total Eden Pty Ltd for the provision of a water service to the residents of the Rosehill Waters Estate.
The exempted water service is the supply of non-potable water provided as part of a community bore scheme at the Rosehill Waters Estate. Water is sourced from on-site bores and distributed through a reticulation network to irrigate public open spaces and residential lots within the Estate.
The exemption will come into effect on the day it is published in the Government Gazette and is valid for an indefinite period.
Summary of the reasons for the decision
Granting this exemption is not contrary to the public interest. It is considered that--
• The regulatory burden imposed by licensing would be disproportionately high given the small scale of the service.
• The risk of Total Eden Pty Ltd exploiting its monopoly power is very low. The service is operated on a not-for-profit basis.
• The service represents a low risk to public health (as the supply is sourced from groundwater and is not for potable use).
