Sydney Water is introducing optional arrangements for developers to implement individual cold water metering of multi-level units. This optional period allows industry to transition to the new requirements that will become mandatory in late 2013/14. Unit developments that are already under construction can continue while providing adequate time for hydraulic designers to meet the new requirements.
All new multi-level building developments will now have the option to prepare their building for individual cold water metering. It will apply to all multi-level buildings that are vertically strata subdivided or can be vertically strata subdivided in future. This includes residential, commercial, mixed or any other use.
A guide has been prepared and provides information to assist hydraulic engineers, architects, developers and plumbers to prepare buildings for individual unit metering of cold water.
Sydney Water will be holding an information session at its Parramatta office on Wednesday 6 February 2013 at 7:30am. If you are interested in attending this session please RSVP by email to meterssydneywater [dot] com [dot] au by Thursday 31st January 2013.
