Plan ahead for new water metering requirements in NSW

6 July 2014

Are you aware of new metering requirements in NSW multi-level buildings?

Sydney Water has advised the ACA that, as of 1 September 2014, new requirements will come into effect that mean multi-level buildings must be designed to cater for metering of individual units.

This will be a compulsory requirement for relevant development applications that receive a Sydney Water Notice of Requirements (NOR).

Sydney Water is encouraging industry to plan ahead and design buildings to meet these requirements. More information can be found on the Sydney Water website and in the Multi-Level Individual Metering Guide.

They have also now accredited metering suppliers for the provision of metering systems. Further details of these suppliers can be found on the Sydney Water website.
