Households urged to use water meters
The Water Corporation is urging those with smart meters to make good use of them to save water over the summer.
Residents with smart meters can monitor their bi-monthly, weekly or daily water usage from the Water Corporation’s selfservice website, My Water, to assess their water saving efforts
Some 8700 smart water meters have been installed in homes around Onslow, Karratha, Roebourne, Point Sampson and Wickham.
Roebourne resident Christine Noonan-Konig has halved her water use since signing up to My Water and making small changes around the house and garden.
Water Corporation North West regional manager Rino Trolio encouraged other residents to follow Ms Noonan-Konig’s lead by reducing sprinkler times, fixing dripping taps and choosing water-wise plants for the garden.
“Many people don’t realise that 40 per cent of household water use is outside the home in the garden, so small changes can make a big difference,” he said.
