Is everyone metered?
Ashburton District Council installs water meters on industrial, commercial and other extra-ordinary properties that are connected to Council operated water supplies. An extra-ordinary connection is usually outside the water supply boundary.
How am I charged?
- Every three months water meters are read
- An invoice is sent to customers once a year
- Each rating unit or property is given an allowance of 1,200 litres per day of water
- Water used over the allowance is charged for at the current rate per 1,000 litres
I think I have a leak – my bill is huge this time!
