History and relevant legislation
The origins of the ACTEW Corporation go back to the Australian Public Service. The functions were transferred from the Commonwealth Government to the ACT Government in 1962 when the Australian Capital Territory Electricity Authority was established. Its functions were then transferred to the Australian Capital Territory Electricity and Water Authority in 1998; and the current corporate entity was established under the Corporations Act (Cth) in 1995. In addition, the company now has obligations under the Utilities Act 2000 (ACT), Water Resources Act 2007 (ACT), Environment Protection Act 1997 (ACT), Water and Sewerage Act 2000 (ACT) and the Public Health Act 1997 (ACT).
In June 2012, ACTEW Corporation did not renew ActewAGL's contact for the management and operation of the water and sewerage network of the ACT and surrounding area, managed since 2000.
