Well apart from petrol being flammable, and water being wet, and necessary for human life, Petrol gets measured out vide a metered pump and you pay at the counter of the petrol station.
Water on the other hand is guestimated in NSW by public service departments who apparently ignore weights and measures legislation because Lynda Burney was paid? to change legislation and enable racketeering in that if you holiday of vacate your Dept of housing premises for a short time and you don’t use any water your still guestimated as using some amount per day/week and there is no verification or re verification by an authorised officer of the amount alledged used or measured by a calibrated instrument.
Some Department of housing flats especially those in Todd street Warrawong Don’t have any water meters installed even after the 11 million dollar upgrade, of your taxes, to eliminate todd and green streets tenants access and egress, they once enjoyed,

Anti-homelessness legislation

and 2 whole blocks, maybe some 15 flats were demolished and not rebuilt, just a vacant grassed area opposite the Warrawong community centre whilst public housing waiting lists only get longer and increase vide the adgenda 21 of taking you sovereignty and rights from you and yours.
so government that spent your childrens future fund, now will sik their servants on to the public as fabians enjoy spending other peoples monies.

When the NSW Sheriff knocked on my door and informed me re their received document( from the dept housing ) re my eviction I immediately asked how many litres of water does the document/eviction warrant allege I have used, and I pointed out the WHO human rights to water and the sheriff scratched his head as if he didn’t understand the legislation including weights and measures legislation, then police attended kicked in my door pepper sprayed my face and incarcerated me , without any sheriff or police answering my question. So now they have set the precedent that no person in NSW or Australia has the right to protect them selves or their property. So When the Monetary crash happens, and it will like a theif in the night , and Certain Constables sergeants inspectors ect who have a bank loan, for their homes, will face similar circumstances when banks demand that they pay their loans off in a month or lose their properties , a racketeering attempt like dept of housing and their guestimation process in contradiction to weights and measures legislation gazetted in our parliament. so a broke govt sicked its corporate employees on to a member of the public to whome no public authority as yet has explained to me with any satisfaction how their bill meets the weights and measures legislation criteria ? but to keep other members of the public being voluntarily compliant to paying a water bill guestimated when petrol at the pumb is metered ? so whats the difference between water and petrol? one has to be measured videa meter but water can be guestimated re usage andif you hoilliday or go on vacation and don’t use adny water one still gets guestimatedly charged for a substance they havnt used . Isnt that classed as stealing ? like when they deprived me of my property and my liberty stealing and kidnapping ! but im sure a corporate scum bag, who proports to be a member of our community, will claim their civil rights over that of your or my civil rights, like mz Grahame when she intimated, and police backed her up, that people don’t have freedom of speech to read out e mails in their community hall, as Mz M. grahame purposely purchased white sugar for residents hall attendees consumption after I informed her or Rosa Korries book Sweet poison and read out to her and hall attendees portions of Professor L Van Rommers article re white sugar. the fabian socialist adgenda in motion and the legal centre right next door helped to concoct documents to ban a member of the public namely me from using a public funded hall paid for by community members taxes. That’s a communistic attitude in your local area for ya. It happened to me are you next?

Qld dam water releases ahead of rain http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/breaking-news/qld-dam-water-releases-ahead-of-rain/story-fn3dxiwe-1226584394597

WATER is being released from Wivenhoe and Somerset dams as Queensland’s southeast prepares for more heavy rain.

Seqwater says the amount of water being released from Wivenhoe Dam will be increased on Sunday morning to about 280 cubic metres of water a second, from 150 cubic metres a second on Saturday.

The dam, near Brisbane, is about 90 per cent full and the aim is to reduce it to 88 per cent

http://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/regions-mines-release-water-fitzroy-basin/1734952/ “We know that six mines were approved to release more than 712 million litres into the Fitzroy catchment on 25 and 26 January,” Save the Reef spokeswoman Dr Libby Connors said.   “Another 35 mines were permitted to release water without giving their volumes.

“If they release at a similar rate it will be adding 4800 megalitres of additional water, that’s almost five billion litres into the already flooded Fitzroy River system.”

For a time, a director on the board of the company’s Queensland subsidiary was Santo Santoro, a former minister  in the Howard government who resigned in disgrace for failing to properly declare his shareholdings.   The company also employs John Wells, a spin doctor with extensive Liberal Party connections.   For almost three years until November last year, the federal senator and former finance director of the Liberal Party, Arthur Sinodinos, was the chairman of Australian Water Holdings.   Last week, Mr Sinodinos said he, too, had 5 per cent of the company as part of his role, and he has recorded a shareholding in the company in his parliamentary pecuniary interest register.   But Mr Sinodinos’s name is absent from the company’s official share register filed with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. Instead, Mr Sinodinos said, Mr Di Girolamo was holding the shares on his behalf.   Asked why the shares are not publicly registered with the corporate regulator, Mr Sinodinos said: ”Because it was on a gentleman’s agreement.”   He said his agreement was that the trigger for the shares to be registered in his name was ”some realisation event”.  He also said it would not be inaccurate to say a successful PPP was one such event.   Since 1992, the company has been paid $580 million to roll out infrastructure to new housing estates in Sydney’s  north-west on behalf of Sydney Water Corporation.   Mr Di Girolamo has already had a significant win since the Coalition took government in March last year.   In January this year, his company and Sydney Water entered a new 25-year exclusive agreement to give it the sole right to project manage the remaining half-a-billion dollars of water infrastructure work in the north-west growth  centre.   A spokesman for the Premier, Barry O’Farrell, said: ”Any agreement Australian Water Holdings has with Sydney Water was negotiated and agreed by Sydney Water at arm’s length from government, as is appropriate.”   Since about 2004, the company’s main goal has been to convince the state government to sell it Sydney Water’s activities in the north-west growth centre, though the O’Farrell government said it had not received a formal bid from the company.   This would be a deal worth billions of dollars, according to a senior government source.

    MPS question billion dollar Sydney Water deal

    Posted Fri 13 Sep 2013, 8:22pm AEST

    Quentin Dempster talks to Steve Whan and John Kaye, two Upper House NSW MP’s who are questioning the relationship between Sydney Water and the Australian Water Holdings company.

    NSW MPs demand answers over NSW Government water deals
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-09-13/nsw-mps-demand-answers-over-water-deals/4957002

    The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has reportedly seized all contracts and documents from Government agencies, including the state-owned water utility Sydney Water, covering its commercial arrangements with AWH.

    AWH took over an exclusive and unlimited deed of agreement first established by Rouse Hill Infrastructure Consortium to provide reticulation, drainage, sewage and waste water services to Sydney’s north-west growth centre in the early 1990s.

    Fees and charges for these services were provided by Sydney Water. By 2008 the value of these works were reported by AWH to be worth $1.4 billion for servicing 60,000 lots over 20 to 30 years.

    But six years ago Sydney Water wanted to terminate its agreement and became embroiled in a prolonged dispute only settled last year after negotiations which produced a new contract for 1,304 weeks – 25 years.

    Opposition rural water spokesman Steve Whan and Greens MP John Kaye have told 7.30 NSW the O’Farrell Government should table all relevant contracts and documents.

    “We need openness on this. How can you have an organisation like Sydney Water in dispute and voicing serious objection to the awarding of this contract without a public tender?” Mr Whan said.

    “The people of New South Wales have a right to know what’s in the contracts, to see them side by side, to work out what’s changed,” Dr Kaye said.

    “That’s why I’ll be asking the Upper House to order the O’Farrell Government to table them through a call for papers.”

    Regardless of what the ICAC does, the two parliamentarians say they want some “sunshine” on the arrangements so the public can see the public interest has been protected.

    AWH is currently headed by lawyer and businessman Nicholas Di Girolamo, a former chairman of the Wests Tigers rugby league club and the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

    He is also a prominent fund raiser for the Liberal Party. In July last year the O’Farrell Government appointed him to the board of the State Water Corporation, which manages rural dams and water assets.

    Mr Di Girolamo declined to comment to the ABC.

    Water Rate Concerns
    By Danielle Buckley
    Dec. 19, 2013, 10:29 a.m.

    Pensioners from a community housing block in Forbes have voiced their outrage at the water rates they are being charged by Housing NSW.

    The housing block, located in north Forbes, is made up of 13 one bedroom units, where tenants each currently pay $9 per fortnight.

    Tony Higgins has been a tenant in the block for 18 months and he believes that this amount is almost three times more than other community housing water rates.

    “Others in community housing pay just $3.10 per fortnight which means they pay only $80.60 per year per house and we pay $234 per year per unit for the same water,” he said.

    “I’m just upset about paying three times more than what Housing NSW are being charged themselves.”

    While the Forbes Shire Council set the water rates for the town, they charge Housing NSW who in turn bill their tenants

    Current Housing NSW tenancy agreements declare that the water rate is set at 4.7 per cent of tenants rent, up to a maximum of $7.

    Yet at this rate, the pensioners are paying more than the Shire Council are charging Housing NSW.

    Mr Higgins is frustrated with this and believes that as tenants of community housing, their discounted rent should not mean they pay more for water and other amenities.

    “With our consumption under the shire council’s water rates we should have paid $790 for the past 12 months, instead we have paid a staggering $3042,” he said.

    “In my opinion, community housing should not be trying to recuperate some of the subsidy that we’re getting as pensioners in water rates,” he said.

    While the water rate charged by Housing NSW is set and therefore consumption should not alter the water bill, a spokesperson for the Department of Family and Community Services said if charges are high it is because of excess usage.

    “Tenants are responsible for excess water usage but Family and Community Services does not apply any additional administrative charges on top of this,” the spokesperson said.

    “Some tenants receive higher bills than they expect, but this is generally found to be due to them maintaining a garden or having a large family.”

    Yet neither Mr Higgins, nor any of the other tenants have families and as Mr Higgins explains, none of the tenants are avid gardeners.

    ICAC target Nick Di Girolamo was paying himself a salary of more than $1 million a year at Australian Water Holdings while the firm was on the brink of collapse.

    The businessman’s company also donated $67,637 to the Liberal and National Parties from 2008 to 2011 as it sought to resolve a contract dispute with Sydney Water despite Treasury advice saying it had “net assets worth $36”.
    ICAC, which will begin hearings into Australian Water Holdings on Monday, announced it would broaden its inquiries to look at Mr Di Girolamo’s salary and that of other AWH executives.
    Mr Di Girolamo was eventually forced out of the company in April 2013 with “a token payment” after he had the firm take a $5 million loan from four business people and was unable to pay it back, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

    Public housing evictions failing despite drugs and crime

    ALMOST every attempt to kick out drug dealers, criminals and troublemakers from public housing fails, with the state tenancy tribunal rejecting more than three out of every four cases.

    Of 418 applications made by the state government, only 96 cases, or 23 per cent, were successful, the most recent figures from the Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal to September last year show.

    The cases illustrate the lengthy and troublesome hoops the Housing Department must negotiate to evict wrongdoers from public housing, which has a waiting list of 55,000 applicants. In one case, a woman found with $15,000 of cannabis inside her unit and 25kg in her car was allowed to stay as a condition of her court-ordered rehabilitation.

    So our Servants who recieve a stipend from the taxpayers for their wages ,
    ignore section 53 ,ie the govt cant do anything financially detrimental to public,
    yet they ignore weights and measures legislation which in my view is not just illegal but treasanous and an act of scumbaggery

    Housing goes begging as govt sells properties

    police lied, sherrifs officers dont understand legislatioinal matters

    or any family member or yours that works would be entitled to and these people pruport to be our servants?

    Measurement Legislation
    Page Content
    The Commonwealth has a constitutional head of power for ‘weights and measures’. This is set out in section 51 (xv) of the Constitution. The Commonwealth also assumes a broader leadership and coordinating role to ensure that our national measurement standards across the physical, chemical and biological spectrums conform to international standards.

    The National Measurement Act 1960 establishes a national system of units and standards of measurement and provides for the uniform use of those units and standards throughout Australia to ensure traceability of measurement. The Act establishes a framework for the regulation of measuring instruments used for trade and provides for a system of verification of utility meters used for trade. The National Measurement Act was amended in 2004 to establish NMI and a statutory officer, the Chief Metrologist, with functions and powers relating to units and standards of measurement and to pattern approval.

    The National Measurement Regulations 1999 provide further detail for the application of the National Measurement Act.

    The National Measurement Guidelines 1999 govern the way in which Australian legal units of measurement may be combined to produce an Australian legal unit of measurement, and how they may be combined with prefixes to produce Australian legal units of measurement.

    here Weights and Measures Regulations Come From
    W
    The Division of Measurement Standards has been given the authority by the Legislature to adopt regulations in order to carry out the enforcement of Business and Professions Code, Division 5 (Section 12027). California weights and measures regulations are found in the California Code of Regulations, Title 4, Division 9. Some of the regulations are developed within the Division, and others are adopted by reference to another organization’s standards, publications, or handbooks as specified in the particular statute. The following are organizations that are utilized for that purpose.

    A word of caution to the weights and measures official
    As a weights and measures official, you will be provided with various program manuals, examination procedures outline, and other useful information that explains how to do your job. You must remember that these various manuals are only guidelines to assist you in proper testing procedures, inspection procedures, and sampling procedures. They are not the law and since they are guidelines, you may not reference them or their various sections as part of a Notice of Violation, a citation (Notice to Appear), or criminal or civil filing. You must reference the proper Business and Professions Code section(s) and the appropriate Code of Regulations section(s). The various manuals may only be used to explain how you performed your inspection, sampling, or testing.
