Throughout 2021, we inspected 547 active pumps in the 2020 group. These are the pumps across NSW that are bigger than 500mm that needed to be fitted with accurate meters, independently certified and able to transmit water take to a central database by 1 December 2020
Sixty-nine per cent of those works are now compliant with the new rules. Importantly more than 80 per cent of the pumps we inspected in this group are now connected to accurate meters that have been independently certified. This is a significant increase from the rate of full compliance we observed in July (23%) and September (54%). It is important to note that our sample size has been subject to changes as more water works were inspected and found to be inactive or undersized.
