How to read water meters

Metering is an important part of water management.

It allows:

  • water users to manage their water efficiently
  • water to be managed efficiently and flexibly
  • water to be shared equitably
  • an accurate record of water usage
  • improved compliance with licence volumes.

Southern Rural Water reads all meters at least twice per year (between 1 July and 30 June). We encourage you to read your meter regularly to monitor and record your water use.

Waterline – www.srw.com.au/worder/

You can now check your usage and enter your own meter reads online using Waterline. Things to note when reading your meter and entering usage online:

  • always enter the meter read in megalitres (ML)
  • always enter the meter read to one decimal place only – do not round meter reads up or down.

For more information on Waterline contact us on 1300 139 510 or visit www.srw.com.au

Example

A meter reading 123.456 should be entered as 123.4ML; do not enter it as 123.456ML, 123ML or 124.0ML.

Maintaining access to meters

You are responsible for keeping your meter site free from obstruction so that our field officers can easily and safely access the meter for reading or repairs.

Your meter may be hard to access because of a locked gate, or the area may be overgrown with grass and weeds near the meter site. If we can’t get to your meter safely, we will ask you to clean the area and make it accessible.

It is an offence to tamper with a meter. Please check with SRW before starting any works or upgrades to your meter or pump installation as changes may affect the meter selection.
