How metering system will work
Contractors will begin installing water meters next year. Meters will be attached to the mains of each home. Leaky pipes will also be repaired at the same time. Water charges are set to be introduced -- at some point -- when the meters have been installed. Metering vans will take measurements electronically of water consumed. Households will be given a basic allocation for free. Any water used above the basic allocation is to be charged, similar to electricity or gas.
