WATER SERVICES ACT 2012
Exemption for Total Eden Pty Ltd for a water service provided at Evermore Heights Estate, Baldivis.
In accordance with section 7 of the Water Services Act 2012, the Hon Mia Davies MLA, Minister for Water, granted an exemption from the application of section 5(1) of the Act to Total Eden Pty Ltd on 23 January 2015, in respect of the provision of a water service at Evermore Heights Estate, Baldivis.
The water service is a non-potable water supply service provided as a community bore scheme at Evermore Heights (stages 1-4). Water is sourced from two on-site bores and distributed through a reticulation network to water public open spaces and residential gardens.
The exemption 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 monopoly power abuse is low; and
• the public health aspects of the service are regulated under the Health Act 1911.
