About us

Passionate about water quality

We play a critical role in the supply of safe, reliable water and wastewater services to the people and communities who rely on them.

Established nearly 90 years ago in the driest state in the driest continent on Earth, we are dedicated to safeguarding public health and the environment by helping our customers prevent the entry and transmission of contaminants into drinking water systems or their discharge into the environment in wastewater.

As an independent business unit within SA Water, a South Australian Government enterprise, we have a deep understanding of and empathy for the workings of water utilities, as well as a long-term commitment to supporting the national and international water industry to solve water quality challenges.

Our specific water industry focus drives our comprehensive range of services which are tailored to all aspects of the water cycle from catchment to tap, to wastewater, reuse and alternative sources.

We provide our customers with world-class, NATA accredited sampling, testing and analysis, and research and consultative services associated with the chemistry, microbiology, biology and ecology of waters, wastewater, sediment and sludge.

Offering so much more than testing services, we also help our customers solve water quality issues and rapidly respond to major water quality incidents and provide expert advice on the design and process optimisation of water and wastewater treatment systems.
