This was divided into 3 Parts:
1) ensuring that all household connections were metered;
2) the selection of water meters with high efficiency and acceptable quality; and
3) the introduction of a monitoring and replacement program. In 1993, 12.61% of all water connections had water meters, resulting in most water bills being calculated based on assumptions. In 1994, PPWSA commenced installing water meters to all household connections and ceased calculating water bills based on assumptions.
- In order to improve the accuracy of the water meters in 1997, PPWSA commenced
replacing the old Class B meters which had a low accuracy and a bias rate more than
+/- 8%, with Class C meters, which had higher accuracy and a bias rate of +/- 2%.
