The Tablelands region is an area covering 64,768 square kilometres of diverse landscapes including world heritage rainforests and crater lakes, expansive savannahs and wetlands, along with a variety of rural and agricultural farming.
Located in Far North Queensland, extending west of Port Douglas, Cairns and Innisfail, there are several major towns including Atherton, Kuranda, Malanda, Ravenshoe, Mareeba, Yungaburraand Herberton. Smaller towns are Mt Garnet, Dimbulah, Chillagoe, Mt Molloy, Millaa Millaa, Julatten, Tolga and Walkamin .
The population of 42,196 is dispersed across this large, geographically diverse region which is slightly larger than the land mass of Tasmania.
Across the region there are 20 water supply schemes. The source of water varies from rivers, creeks, bores, dams and lakes. All schemes have chlorination with the exception of Mt Garnet. Their water is sourced from the Herbert River, using an 11 kilometre delivery main, and is treated in town using a small micro filtration plant.
Daily testing ensures reporting and quality standards are maintained and risks identfied quickly, such as E. Coli levels.
Water treatment plants are located at Dimbulah, Johnstone River Estate, Kuranda, Malanda, Mareeba, Millaa Millaa, Mt Garnet, Yungaburra. Mt Molloy is a declared ‘non-potable’ water supply and as such has no treatment or disinfection.

Providing low-cost, low-power, long range communications for many types of sensors and devices, Taggle’s network is offered as a managed service with data delivered to agreed service levels.
With battery-powered transmitters available for use with water, gas and electricity meters as well as pressure, level, temperature and other sensors, Taggle’s network can be used to collect data from thousands of widely distributed devices. This data, when aggregated and analysed, provides new insights and context to existing operations and can be used to develop new approaches to design, planning, operation and capital management activities.
Taggle is currently contracted by more than 20 water utilities across Australia to collect water meter and other data for purposes such as leak detection, demand management, network optimisation and billing. The data, delivered in an open format to make it available for use in software platforms such as SCADA, GIS, hydraulic modelling and others.
With Taggle network, covering more than 100,000km2, customers other than water utilities are starting to take advantage of the opportunity presented by having Taggle network in their area. Farming groups are collecting weather data to better inform their members of local conditions while regional water management authorities are collecting data from water bores to monitor the impacts of water extraction on aquifers.
Recognising that no one network type will excel in all applications, Taggle embraces emerging LPWA standards such as LoRa and NB-IoT and is developing the capability to deploy these new technologies alongside its existing network to allow its customers to choose the one best suited to their needs.
