Drinking water information for local government

Sitecode System

In 1993, the Health Department of Western Australia introduced computerised site code sampling identification number to be used by authorised sampling agencies whenever water samples are taken and submitted to an analytical laboratory.

The purpose of the ‘Site Code’, system is to enable sampling and monitoring agencies to maintain accurate records of sample results in an electronic form.

Since that time the system has been extended and developed to include a variety of water, soil, meat and allied sampling activities. The site code system is also used to register and monitor producers of packaged water, water sources available to the public, mussel growers as part of the Western Australian Shellfish Quality Assurance Program (WASQAP) and Remote Area Essential Service Program (RAESP).

All information on the system is available for enquiry by users. Sampling agency activities and associated site codes are available from the Department of Health and full site code listings can be supplied upon request.

This Sitecodes manual consolidates all previous circulars to help new and existing sampling agencies to effectively use and maintain the system.
