Tell us your thoughts about the City’s plans for large water meter installations
The City of Gold Coast (City) is seeking feedback from developers and industry on the City’s plans for changes to large water meter installations (50mm and above).
Historically, all of the City’s large water meters have been installed below ground in plastic or cement meter pits outside of the property boundary. The proposed changes will see larger meters installed above ground and on lot. The changes are applicable for new water meter installations and reconfigurations only with existing meter installations being assessed on a case by case basis when replacement is required.
The changes will be implemented in approximately six months' time and will improve accessibility to the meters, extend their lifespan and reduce workplace health and safety issues associated with accessing underground meter pits. The changes will also align the City’s standards with other water service providers, including those in South East Queensland.
The plans and drawings detailing the changes are provided here for viewing.
Please provide your feedback on these planned changes to email@example.com by 31 January 2018.
