Why Do We Pay For Water On Un-metered Vacant Land?

Question time.png

John Matthews sent SA Today a letter asking why vacant land owsers are charged for water.

Could you please ask... why SA Water is allowed to charge vacant land owners for a water meter they don'thave with the blessing of the SA Government? Who put this charge into legislation? It's no different to what the Federal Government is going into with (what) the banks and insurance companies are doing. Absolute Rip Off."

We caught up with the General Manager of Customer Delivery Kerry Rowlands from SA Water to explain why this occurs.
