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 announced it will adjust the first three start dates for the new metering rules. The government remains committed to rolling out the metering rules. However the lack of water due to the severe drought conditions will make it impossible for most water users to meet their new obligations by the current deadline. The Government is also carefully considering the other feedback it heard during the recent metering roadshow, and will provide its response soon. See the ‘metering roadshow’ page for more information.
