Measuring Success: The Kapiti Coast experience

The March/April edition of Water New Zealand’s magazine, featured a comprehensive article on the Kapiti Coast District Council (KCDC) watering metering initiative. DataCol was able to provide some thoughts around improving the meter data collection process which the Council implemented. The experience has been invaluable for all parties involved.

23,000 water meters were installed throughout the district and 18 months later they shared their results.

  • Water use has decreased by 26% (from 590 litres per person/per day to 437 litres per person/per day).
  • 443 leaks were discovered (one in particular was wasting 430,000 litres of water per day!)
  • Greater engagement between the council and the community.
  • The community has a better understanding of their water use and have changed their behaviour accordingly.
