Water meters opposed by group

12:03 pm on 2 December 2010

A petition opposing the installation of household water meters has been presented to a meeting of Wellington City Council.

The Wellington Residents Coalition lobby group says 18,000 thousand people signed the petition.

The petition asked the council not to see water as a commercial commodity.

In response, the council reiterated its commitment to keeping its water services publicly owned and run on a not-for-profit basis.
