Re-registering an existing standpipe

If your standpipe has been cancelled from a previously approved permit or you've bought it second-hand from another owner, you can re-register it by providing the meter serial number and meter reading.

You must ensure the standpipe is re-calibrated to ensure it's accurately recording your water use.
