Water Meters
As part of a five year investment programme agreed with Ofwat, South East Water will be installing 200,000 water meters by 2015, meaning that 70% of customers will have a meter by 2015 with the number due to reach 90% by 2020. This is a compulsory programme to fit meters to help protect future water supplies.

From Summer 2011 South East Water will begin metering in Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath. They offer a postcode search so that you can find a specific date for your address.
