WATER SERVICES ACT 2012
Exemption for Bennett Range Pty Ltd for a water service to Karri Mia Caravan Park, Denmark
In accordance with section 7 of the Water Services Act 2012 (Act) Hon Mia Davies MLA, Minister for Water, granted an exemption from section 5(1) of the Act to Bennett Range Pty Ltd on 20 March 2014.
The service being granted the exemption is a water supply service provided to the Karri Mia Caravan Park, Mount Shadforth Road, Denmark. Water is sourced from a spring-fed dam, treated and supplied to the caravan park for potable and non-potable use.
The exemption is valid for an indefinite period.
Summary of 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 risks of the abuse of monopoly power in the provision of this service are low. The service is operated on a not-for-profit basis.
• The public health aspects of the service are regulated under the Health Act 1911.
