    Jamie asked 6 months ago

    Hi Jamie,

    There is currently no groundwater prohibition area (GPA) established in any parts of Rosewater. 

    If you would like me to provide you with any property specific advice, then please email the address of your property to: engage.epa@sa.gov.au.

    Many thanks,

    Sarah
