Meters to Save Litres
The ongoing successful installation of Automatic Water Meter Reading (AMR) devices in the Hinchinbrook Shire is helping residents to keep money in their pockets. AMR systems monitor individual water use by transmitting meter readings to local receivers every hour. This information is available daily to residents when they sign up to the Hinchinbrook H2O customer portal.
“The feedback from residents concerning the introduction of the AMR devices in Hinchinbrook has been extremely positive,” said Mayor Ramon Jayo.
“Many residents have expressed significant appreciation about being informed of water leaks on their properties, which has saved them money.”
Residents are strongly encouraged to sign up to the customer portal h2o.hinchinbrook.qld.gov.au, where they can monitor their water consumption and set leak alerts for free. Currently, 70 residents have already taken advantage of this initiative since the roll out of the customer portal at the Ingham Show. The Hinchinbrook Automatic Water Meter Reading project is a joint initiative of the Hinchinbrook Shire Council and the Queensland Government.
