Wellington is rapidly running out of water and water meters may be the only solution.
Water meters in every house and daily water-use reports will be necessary for Wellington to avoid drought-like water shortages.
A new Wellington Water report prepared by Ernst Young and Beca recommended the region adopt a $144 million advanced metering infrastructure, with daily water consumption feedback and leak alerts provided to residents via a smartphone app.
The report warned leaks and over-consumption could put the region’s water stock under severe strain, and potentially cost hundreds of millions to fix.
At the current rate of water use and population growth, the amount of water needed to meet drought resilience water levels could exceed supply by as early as 2026.
