Tell us your views on the draft Water Register Regulations which support a new and improved Water Register

What’s being decided?

An enhanced South Australian Water Register is being developed with new and improved features to help water licence holders and water businesses manage their licensing needs. Changes will allow Water Register users to manage their water assets online, including new registration services and electronic lodgement.

Proposed Water Register Regulations (the regulations) will be implemented in stages and will align with a new online water management customer portal, currently being developed. 

The regulations have been developed based on feedback from stakeholders including water licence holders, industry peak bodies, financial institutions, lawyers, conveyancers, water brokers and relevant State Government agencies.

To help you understand what these changes mean to you, we have put together a Regulations explanatory paper.

Get involved

To help inform your feedback, check the new features of the Water Register, read the changes proposed in the explanatory paper and the draft regulations.

Please also note that any responses that are made on a confidential basis may still be subject to access under Freedom of Information laws.

How can your input influence the decision?

Your feedback will be used to finalise draft regulations for the enhanced South Australian Water Register.  

What are the next steps?

A consultation report including the feedback received and how it contributed to the final Water Register will be available on this and the Department of Environment and Water websites.
