2014 Water Meter Survey

In 2014, Lucerne Australia conducted an audit of water meters used by lucerne seed growers in south-east SA to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact. This audit was kindly supported by Natural Resources South-East's Irrigation Innovation Grants program. It gained insights into:

  • the number of water meters managed by grower members in the region;
  • the types of water meters being used on farm;
  • the most common brands of water meters being used;
  • most common service providers;
  • how regularly water meters require servicing and repairing;
  • which water meters provide the most longevity and are most reliable;
  • which parts of the meters are breaking down; and
  • determining the cause(s) of equipment breakdowns.


On completion of this project, results were shared with regional irrigators, local industry groups and any other interested parties to ensure all irrigators can profit from this newfound knowledge. To read the final report click here.
