Water metering in Queensland

Water entitlement holders required to have an authorised water meter are responsible for the purchase of their own meter, as well as its installation, validation, and maintenance.

These metered entitlement holders for unsupplemented water (non-urban) are required to provide up to 2 meter readings to the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME) within a water year for each water meter.

This guide explains your requirements for water metering in Queensland, including how to read your water meter and the benefits of self-reading your meter.
