Water meter readers will soon be in action across the South Burnett.
A South Burnett Regional Council spokesperson said Council employees and / or contractors would be reading meters between 6:00am and 6:00pm at all premises connected to the Blackbutt, Boondooma, Kingaroy, Kumbia, Murgon, Nanango, Proston, Proston Rural, Tingoora, Wondai and Wooroolin water schemes.
The process will start this weekend and will continue until the end of January.
Data collected will be included on rates notices issued in February.
“Meter reading personnel may be required to enter properties to gain access to and read the water meters,” the spokesperson said.
“It is a requirement of our water meter reading personnel that soil or other material that is removed from any meter box to record a reading is returned to the meter box.
“This prevents drains from being blocked or ratepayer lawns being damaged by anything removed from the meter box.
“For the safety of meter reading personnel, please ensure that your animals are enclosed within your property and check that garden vegetation does not obstruct access to your water meter.”
