The Water Meter Zone is a set of regulations governing the use of water meters throughout Australia.
The zone is enforced by the NSW Water Industry Association (WIA), which administers it.
In a statement to the ABC, WIA said the zone was “set by the State Government”.
“The WIA is a not-for-profit organisation, whose purpose is to promote the conservation of water resources, provide a platform for the public to voice their opinions, and provide a forum for public debate on water policy,” the statement read.
“We also ensure that the zone is not used for industrial purposes or in breach of public health and safety laws.”
In its statement to The Australian, Wia said its “partners” were responsible for “fencing and enforcing the zone”.
The WA Government has not yet made any comment on the WA Water MeterZone.
