Providing your data
Submitting your data
When your meter has been installed, you will need to record and submit your water take/use data to us.
Please remember, the recording and reporting frequency of water take data is dependent on conditions written into your consent and/or the water metering regulations. Always follow to the stricter of the two.
There are two ways that your water take/use can be reported:
- Via Telemetry which will automatically record your take volume for you and transfer it directly to us.
- Manually enter your readings online.
Telemetry provides an economical and efficient method to access remote data instantly, saving time and costs by eliminating manual data collection, and assisting with reporting water take to Council.
Monitoring of water take is only one function of telemetry and Environment Southland is encouraging users to explore the full range of management tools made available through telemetry, by also monitoring soil moisture and pump status. Many systems are also able to send text and email alarms.
We are not able to specify a particular supplier or system; we recommend that you talk to the Blue Tick registered providers to find out what functions and services they can provide you.

If you keep a manual log of your water takes, your consent outlines how often and when you have to supply this information to us by using our online system,
