Is Irish Water still installing water meters?
Water meters are installed at most business premises to measure the amount of water that is being supplied. The metering of business related water supply connections is considered to be a more equitable way for business customers to pay for water services. Meters are also very useful in identifying leaks in the water piping system and thereby benefits water conservation.
Following planned government legislation, Irish Water will install meters on multi-occupancy premises (e.g. apartments) which will be used to check for high leakage levels. In addition, it is expected that Government policy will provide for metering of new and refurbished connections.
