Automatic Water Meter Devices

A major water meter infrastructure upgrade is beginning in the Gunnedah Shire with the installation of automatic water meter devices at Gunnedah, Curlewis, Tambar Springs and Mullaley.

Fully funded by Gunnedah Shire Council, the project will see automatic water meter devices fitted at approximately 4500 homes and businesses throughout the Shire. The project will be commencing in December, with the devices to be installed by 30 June 2019.

The automatic water meter devices will be a useful tool for both Council and residents to more accurately monitor water usage and identify issues, such as leaks, faster. Council and customers will be able to use a web-based management tool to constantly measure volumetric use and identify water leaks whilst more accurately monitoring pressure and flow throughout the network, ultimately reducing water bills and operational costs.

The data collected from the devices, such as daily and target usage, as well as cost per day will be a great asset to allow Council to better monitor peak demand and plan for water upgrades, as well as be notified if the water meter devises are tampered with.

The automatic water meter devices replace existing meter devices and need to be installed by hand on every property with access to town water. The data will also be used for billing purposes.
