Mareeba Shire Council
Mareeba Shire Council, located on Queensland’s north, near Cairns, is responsible for providing water across the region. The council approached Taggle for assistance in detecting water leaks and help the community manage their water consumption.
In two stages, local plumbers installed Taggle transmitter devices on resident’s water meters initially in Mareeba and then the surrounding areas. Data is collected hourly, with the council now able to more easily detect leaks and quickly notify their customers to resolve the problem.
The long-term plan is for residents to have direct access to their water usage information through the council’s website.
Solution: Automatic Meter Reading and data acquisition
