Water meters are
the fairest way
to pay for water
How will you be charged?
The meter measures how much water is used in cubic metres (one cubic metre = 1,000 litres) and you are charged a unit rate for each cubic metre of water used. 1,000 litres is enough water for:
You are charged a unit rate for each cubic metre of water returned to the sewerage system, which is treated and recycled to the environment. This is called the wastewater charge.
This charge is worked out on the basis that 92.5 per cent of water used goes into the sewers, because some is used in the gardens or evaporates.
The below link shows the average consumption for households that have a meter. The figures should be used as a guide as consumption will vary depending on your circumstances.
