Smart Metering gets Quick Results for Metro Trains / VicTrack

Metro Trains' supply of water comes through three main water meters, so WaterGroup installed three 3G loggers and then developed a dashboard with customised graphs so they could see the cumulative usage of all three meters with individual site breakdowns.
It wasn't long after install that Metro Trains quickly noticed on the dashboard some big jumps in water usage, which indicated a water burst / leak. Savings were in the order of >10,000 kL/wk!

Water Management Audits at 20 Sites

City of Casey is constantly pursuing excellence in water conservation and efficiency. It is for this reason they engaged WaterGroup to conduct a water efficiency audit at 20 of their community buildings and facilities. These sites were chosen as they had experienced highly variable water consumption patterns in the last three years. These variable patterns indicated the presence of potential leaks and abnormal consumption patterns.
