Gladstone water meters to be read from Monday
WATER meters across the Gladstone region will be read over the next month.
The program, which begins on Monday and continues until mid-July, also includes the testing of flow limiting valves in the Beecher and Burua areas.
Gladstone Regional Council's economic development strategy and finance portfolio spokeswoman Karen Porter said residents could help meter readers get their job done by ensuring meters were easily accessible.
"Water meters should not be covered with topsoil, building or household materials, or parked vehicles, to enable council officers to take accurate readings," Cr Porter said.
"Please also keep dogs secure or restrained away from the meter and unlock any gates preventing access to the meter."
Cr Porter said anyone unsure of the location of their water meter should contact the council.
"Residents are also reminded that it is illegal to tamper with meters," she said.
