Ian McAthy

Metering and Water Efficiency Manager

November 2010

why meter
Why Meter?
  • Statutory Water Resources Management Plan 2009
    • 30 year forecast
  • Water Resource Availability
    • Water stressed area
    • Reliant on groundwater sources – no rivers of sufficient size
    • EA consider area over abstracted – looking to reduce public water supply abstractions
  • Demand For Water
    • Increasing population
    • Rising number of lower occupancy properties – leads to higher per property usage
  • Long term planning shows we need to manage demand
    • Unmeasured / fixed cost – no incentive to reduce demand
    • Metering / paying for what you use incentivises careful use

Other Trials – Deferred Metering
  • Deferred Metering
  • 1,000 unmeasured properties are to be part of a Deferred Metering trial

– Capel le Ferne, Hawkinge, Ringwould and Kingsdown

  • Meters will be fitted as normal and manually read every three months
  • Customers will remain on unmeasured charges until April 2012
  • Customers will not receive any water efficiency leaflets/guidance
  • Customers will not be advised of their quarterly consumptions until one year after the meters are installed
  • Customers can read their own meters and Opt to change to measured charges at any time if they wish
  • After one year customers will be advised of their water use over the previous four quarters
  • No retrospective discounts will be given if customers then choose to Opt
  • The difference will inform the change in consumption on transfer from unmeasured charges to metered charging.
