Smart water meter solutions project

Smart water meter

Access to near real-time water use data will soon be a reality for some Gold Coast water customers. The City of Gold Coast is in the initial phase of proactively converting over 4000 existing water meters to smart water meters. Smart water meter technology, also known as an automatic water meter reader or data loggers, is fitted to your existing water meter allowing for the collection, transmission and analysis of high resolution water-use data.

Over the course of 2020, data loggers will be installed at over 4000 commercial premises that have high levels of water usage, giving customers the ability to log-in to a web-based system, self-monitor water use, and respond to alerts of a potential water leak.

Currently, mechanical water meters are read manually to capture usage data for billing purposes. Data loggers allow you to automatically track the amount of water you use, giving you greater visibility and control over your usage and water bill. Smart metering will assist us in helping you quickly identify leaks, enable more timely repairs to better manage your water usage and ultimately save you money.

Case study

Smart water meter technology is already helping schools across the city as part of the Schools Water Conservation Program. The program has helped schools to quickly identify leaks, keep track of usage patterns and improve their overall water literacy.
