Developing a Policy Position on Smart Water Metering Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Low rainfall and high water demand threaten Melbourne, Victoria's water supplies. Installing domestic smart water meters throughout Melbourne would cost over $200M but could reduce water consumption up to 18% if usage data were communicated to consumers in ways that triggered well-studied behavioural cues. In the interim, current quarterly water bills could use some of these same behavioural cues to promote conservation. These findings form the core of policy recommendations we provided to Australia's Alternative Technology Association.
