Accessing drinking water in a dual reticulation area

The City allows contractors in areas with dual reticulation to access drinking water by attaching an approved 40 millimetre (mm) short-term water meter issued by Gold Coast Water and Waste.

About 40mm meters

  • Infrastructure in these areas feature water main gate valves and 40mm Storz coupling.
  • A 40mm short-term water meter can be hired for up to one month. A two-day minimum hire charge applies, followed by an extra daily hire fee, and the cost of the water usage per kilolitre.
  • To hire a 40mm short-term meter, call the City on 1300 000 928.

How to use a 40mm short-term water meter

  • Remove the Storz cap, turn on water main gate valve to flush out debris and turn off gate valve.
  • Connect short hose.
  • Connect 40mm short-term meter ensuring that the cam lock fitting is connected securely.
  • Open gate valve on 40mm short-term meter, open water main gate valve, check meter is working and turn off main gate valve.
  • Connect discharge hoses.

To reduce the risk of hose or fitting damage, operation of the water meter should be by water main gate valve. The use of the water meter is subject to current City metered standpipe approval requirements. See the Approval for supply of drinking water through a metered standpipe document(PDF, 217KB)
