Year end water statistics were presented to Council. We have reduced our water loss from 54% in 2014 to 34% for 2015 and have reached an all time low for 2016 of 5.4%.  The difference can be attributed to our great water operator and public works using our SCADA system data to detect leaks earlier and then able to pinpoint the location a little easier than in previous years.

Other 2016 stats:

  • 7 water breaks (2014 & 2015 both had 13 breaks)

  • Average number of water breaks/year (2003 to 2016) is 6.9

  • Of pre-2003 water services 59% have been replaced

  • Average consumption per day 153.8 m3

  • Peak consumption in year 183.2 m3

  • Big water consumers use 8% of the water

  • Used 44% of licensed well water allocation (65,643 m3), with 94% returned relative to diverted
