Through Department of Public Works, Taylor Environmental were engaged to manage the sub-metering of water lines within 6 SEQ correctional Centres. This project was an outcome of the WEMP process which required sub-metering of all significant end uses under Queensland Water Commission WEMP guidelines. The internal and external sub-metering involved specification of meter placement with regard given to not only water network schematics and water use characteristics, but also to restricted access and security requirements. All water meters were connected to data loggers. Almost 100 water meters were installed in total in the correctional centres.
In addition to the installation of sub-meters, other WEMP outcomes undertaken by the correctional centres included upgrades of fittings and fixtures, rainwater harvesting investigations and review of water use practices.
