Adopted in 2013, the Comprehensive Regional Water Plan outlines the actions needed for increasing water supply in combination with metering, to manage demand.
Water metering will help the SCRD move towards equitable billing, water conservation, and better water management. Water metering is widely recognised as an industry best practice. Many cities and regional districts across Canada have already made the move towards metering.
MONTHLY WATER USE UPDATE FOR RESIDENTS
The SCRD is working to share your water data, with you.
The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) is using water meters to learn about water consumption trends and to identify water leaks within the system. Water meter data is read once per month, from the roadway, to collect: 1) Total Water Consumption and; 2) Leak Notifcation (if present).
