Data logger attached to meterWe're adding digital data loggers to all existing urban water meters to record water usage for billing and data analysis.

Data loggers will help us:

  • quickly detect potential leaks – to save you water and money
  • take more accurate meter reads when we can't access your meter
  • spot abnormal water usage patterns

We're working towards making data from digital meters available to you online so you can monitor your own usage.
