How to read a meter
- Enter meter readings or water use data online or
- Download a Meter Water Use Card
Take a reading at the same time each month.
To find out much has been used in a month, subtract the previous month's reading from the current reading.
To find out how much of the annual allocation you have left, subtract the current reading from the first reading for the water year and subtract this from the amount you have been allocated.
Note that meter readings submitted via Water Online meet the department's requirements for submitting data on a 'Meter Water Use Card'.
