NSW non-urban water metering framework

The NSW Government is committed to implementing a robust metering framework to improve the standard and coverage of non‑urban water meters across NSW. This is an important step in helping to build community confidence in how the state’s water is managed.

The new non‑urban water metering framework began in December 2018 and will be implemented through a staged roll-out over five years.

The NSW Government has adjusted the first three start dates for the metering rules. While the Government remains committed to rolling out the metering rules, the lack of water due to the severe drought conditions made it impossible for most water users to meet their obligations by the deadline. The Government has also made a number of minor admendments to the metering rules. See the latest metering updates for more information.
