Water extraction licences
Water meter information
A water meter should provide accurate data on the volume of water being pumped from the resource.
Water use data is used with rainfall, river/spring flow and groundwater level to keep track of the impact of people on the resource.
There should be a balance between the volume entering the system through recharge/rainfall and the volume leaving it through pumping and natural discharge such as springs.
Water meter information supports sustainable water use.
Submit your water meter reading
If you have a water extraction licence in the Northern Territory, you must submit monthly water meter readings, unless otherwise stated on your licence. This is part of your responsibility as a licence holder.
