New metering rules for tamper-proof water take
Lois Lee | 승인 2018.12.06 12:29

The new metering requirement will require a tamper-proof meter to be installed for NSW water users. 

This will be part of the NSW Government’s Water Reform Action Plan, and apply to licensed water take from across NSW. 

“We are reforming water management in NSW. This framework is a significant step forwards to NSW as leaders in water management,” Group Director Water Renewal Taskforce Emma Soloman said. 

“Metering ensures sustainable, equitable and efficient allocation of water for communities, local economies and for the environment. Under the new rules, if works are above the threshold or in “at risk” groundwater sources then they must be metered,” she added. 

From 1 April 2019, all new or replacement meters must be pattern-approved and be installed by a qualified professional officer. 

Those who wants to keep their existing meters need to ensure their meters are pattern approved and validated, meet accuracy requirements and install data logger and tamper evident seals. 

“The staged roll-out aims to ensure the largest water users in NSW are metered and telemetered within a year of the metering requirements commencing,” Ms Solomon said. 

The new metering requirement initiative is due to take effect across the next five years.
