Water Use Reporting
Once your meter has been installed, you will need to record and submit your water use data to council. If you are recording them yourself, you need to record the meter readings. If you use telemetry, records of the volumes you use will be sent to the council by your telemetry provider.
There are two ways that your water use can be reported.
- Manually record your water use and enter your use into the councils data base via the Councils website or,
- Via Telemetry which will automatically record your use for you and transfer it directly into council’s database.
How often do I need to do this?
If you have installed a meter because of the Government regulations, you will have to take either daily readings, or weekly readings, depending on whether you live in a water sensitive area or not. These readings need to be sent to the council by the end of July each year. You can, of course, send more often if you want to.
If you have installed a meter because this is a condition of your consent, you need to check in the conditions as to how often you need to read your water meter and how often this needs to be sent to the council. The most common conditions require that readings are sent at the end of each month.
