Helping rural councils defend against drought

As part of its newly launched ‘Defend against Drought’ plan, water savings company WaterGroup is offering rural councils the opportunity to apply for a free NUmeter trial, irrigation meter trial or meter data assessment.

Guenter Hauber-Davidson, Managing Director of WaterGroup, said, “We sympathise greatly with the rural councils as they face the ever-growing demands and challenges of becoming more water efficient and sustainable during Australia’s toughest drought conditions since 2007.

“By creating the ‘Defend against Drought’ offers, we are giving councils, at no cost to them, an obligation-free opportunity to find new ways to save, monitor and understand their water usage — all they have to do is apply before 15 October 2018 to be in the running.”

The three offers include:

  • NUmeter Trial — WaterGroup will install and connect 10 network-enabled ultrasonic water meters (aka NUmeters) for a council to keep and trial. Currently being trialled by four of Australia’s largest utilities, the NUmeter is suitable for residential and commercial metering; is easy to connect; has low power consumption, long battery life and long-range coverage; is NMI Certified; and meets the relevant Australian standards.
  • Irrigation Meter Trial — WaterGroup’s network-enabled ultrasonic irrigation meter will be hitting Australian shores in early 2019. You’ll be the first to get one installed to trial.
  • Meter Data Assessment — Receive a free meter data assessment/analysis from WaterGroup’s experienced team and get a deeper understanding of your water networks.
