Customer Portal is a free online system that allows you to monitor your water use using your smart phone, tablet, laptop or home computer. It's available to our customers connected to the Wimmera or Northern Mallee pipelines.
Water usage data is collected by a remote electronic device installed on your water meter.
This data allows you to:
- monitor your water use anytime
- monitor your water allowance and receive alerts if you're going to exceed it
- be alerted to potential water leaks or high use (via SMS or email)
- create your own alerts, for example, for low water consumption where stock are grazing.
It's fast, free and secure to sign up.
