Smart water meter replacement program

Council is currently rolling out smart water meters across the council area, with over 6,500 properties  benefiting from having a smart water meter installed for both filtered and raw water usage.

A smart water meter is a device that automatically records water use, has the ability to electronically report water usage information at regular intervals and provides instant access to data that can show peak usage and other information.

Benefits of smart water meters include:

  • the early detection of leaks
  • the ability for customers to check their water usage daily
  • allowing customers to develop strategies to reduce water usage
  • enabling council to respond more effectively to usage enquiries.
