Smart Water Meters

Reducing water wastage, ensuring bill accuracy, informing better water management and improving customer service

Smart Water Meter Program - Stanthorpe

A smart water meter is a digital device that measures the volume of water passing through the meter and then securely sends this data via a low frequency radio transmitter to Council for processing.

Council expects the smart water program will reduce water loss, improve accuracy of water rates billing, and increase participation in water saving practices with an ability to provide real-time water usage data to the community.

Around 2,700 smart water meters will be installed throughout the Stanthorpe area.

Existing residential and commercial mechanical water meters will be either replaced with a new electronic meter or retro-fitted with a low power transmitter. The new installations will link remotely to a private network which will send near real time water usage information securely to a Council’s data management system, enabling water reticulation monitoring, leak detection, and accurate billing.
